Aug. 28, 2020—Chancellor Daniel Diermeier and Faculty Senate Chair Catherine McTamaney presented faculty awards for both spring and fall 2020 as part of the virtual faculty assembly held Aug. 27.
Jul. 14, 2020—Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor of Engineering Cynthia Reinhart-King's trailblazing cancer research will be supported by a three-year, $1 million grant from the prestigious W. M. Keck Foundation. Her research takes a bold engineering approach to sort breast cancer cells based on their behavior first and has produced compelling data that show less migratory cells create more metastases, contradicting the prevailing hypothesis on how cancer spreads.

Sep. 13, 2019—New research from a group of Vanderbilt biomedical engineers reveals that while cancer cells metastasize quickly, they generally choose pathways that use the least amount of energy.
Mar. 25, 2019—The finding gives a boost to the field of metabolomics, the next big thing in fighting cancer. It can complement immunotherapies, which use the body’s natural defenses to kill cancer cells.
Oct. 26, 2018—Cynthia Reinhart-King, Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor of Engineering, is the inaugural recipient of the Biomedical Engineering Society’s Mid-Career Award, which recognizes meritorious achievements and leadership in biomedical engineering and significant involvement and sustained contributions to the BMES.
Sep. 27, 2017—Cynthia Reinhart-King, Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor of Engineering and professor of biomedical engineering, is a member of the 2017 class of fellows of the Biomedical Engineering Society.
May. 2, 2017—The extraordinary academic achievements of 11 faculty members named to endowed chairs were recognized during a celebration April 27 at the Student Life Center.
Jan. 16, 2017—Tumors cause the intracellular material surrounding them to stiffen. Softening this protective layer could make existing cancer treatments more effective, according to new research.
