The Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology was originally named the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology. In 2005 after the passing of Professor Smalley, the Rice University Board of Trustees renamed the Institute in his honor. In this historical account, the Institute will be referred to as the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology prior to Fall 2005 and the Smalley Institute thereafter.
