The Smalley-Curl Institute (SCI) Summer Research Colloquium began in 1986 as the RQI Colloquium, and has taken place in August of each year since then. The purpose of the SCI Summer Research Colloquium is to provide undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers working at Rice with an opportunity to present their most recent work.
The Smalley-Curl Institute is excited to announce a new program that will provide graduate students with the opportunity to propose, plan, and oversee original research projects! SCI-STAR: Student Training for Advising Research will be a collaborative program. Working with the Doerr Institute for New Leaders (DINL), the goal of this program is to develop graduate students as leaders in science, especially in the context of mentorship and research group management. Please see our SCI-STAR website for additional information. Congratulations to graduate student Melia Bonomo for submitting the winning name for this new program!
