SCI-Affiliated Research Groups:
Professional Science Master's Program: Nanoscale Science¬†The Nanoscale Science program combines advanced science and engineering courses in nanostructures and nanotechnology with training in management, business, entrepreneurship and communication and a required practical work experience. Students can choose electives from focus areas in nano-materials, nano-optics, nano-photonoics, nano-bio, management and tech entrepreneurship according to their interest.¬†
Rice-Methodist Innovative Collaborative Grant Award (ICGA)¬†The ICGA is intended to support innovative and collaborative research from trainees at both the Department of Nanomedicine - Houston Methodist and Rice University. Under this mechanism, 3 projects will be awarded the amount of $10,000 each. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at Rice University and Methodist, as well as research associates on an academic track, instructors on an academic track, and visiting students at Methodist are highly encouraged to apply as principal investigators.
SCI-STAR: Student Training for Advising Research¬†A new program that will provide graduate students with the opportunity to propose, plan, and oversee original research projects! 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 group management.
