Texas Nanotech Pioneer Outshines Larger Peers In "Small Times" Survey

Magazine Ranks Rice Among Top Nano Schools

Houston, TX | Posted on May 25, 2006

Small Times magazine, the leading trade magazine for the burgeoning nanotechnology industry, has ranked Rice University's nanotechnology programs fourth best overall based on a survey of 50 of the nation's leading research universities.

Rice placed among the top 10 in six out of seven survey categories that specifically relate to nanotechnology, besting much larger peer institutions like Northwestern University, Cornell University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Purdue University and the University of Texas at Austin in various categories.

"The recognition of the strength of Rice's programs, both from our peers and from the editors of Small Times, is a clear indication that Rice's small size is anything but a hindrance when it comes to nanoscale science," said Wade Adams, director of Rice's Richard E. Smalley Institute of Nanoscale Science and Technology. "Rice's close-knit faculty, interdisciplinary culture and innovative equipment-sharing programs offer unique advantages to researchers in cross-disciplinary fields like nanotechnology."

In preparing its rankings, Small Times surveyed leading research institutions about their research, education, facilities, industrial outreach and commercialization activities.
