Rosenthal to step down as VINSE director; planning for institute’s future begins

Posted by on Friday, April 5, 2019 in News.

Sandra Rosenthal, Jack and Pamela Egan Professor of Chemistry, will step down as director of the Vanderbilt Institute for Nanoscale Science and Engineering (VINSE) on June 30 following 12 years of service.

“I am so grateful to Sandy for her many years of devoted service at VINSE,” said Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Susan R. Wente. “She leaves behind an impressive legacy, and I am excited to see how the institute continues the development and expansion we have seen under her leadership.”

During Rosenthal’s tenure as director, VINSE has grown from 24 to 55 faculty, who have accrued more than $250 million in funding for nanoscience research. Rosenthal led the expansion of the graduate interdisciplinary materials science program; established the undergraduate minor in nanoscience; created an inclusive, immersive undergraduate Tech Crew experience; and championed the planning and implementation of the new $20 million VINSE core facilities in the Engineering and Science Building.
