Rice-Baylor Marriage Proposal Falls Apart

A plan to merge Texas's only private medical school with a nearby top research university has collapsed. Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) and Rice University, both in Houston, had been talking for months about joining forces to create a research powerhouse and stabilize Baylor, which is in financial trouble.
