‘Cindy Reinhart-King’

Cynthia Reinhart-King receives $1M W. M. Keck Foundation Grant

Jul. 15, 2020—A bold engineering approach by a Vanderbilt University researcher to sort breast cancer cells based on their behavior first has produced compelling data that show less migratory cells create more metastases, contradicting the prevailing hypothesis on how cancer spreads. Expanding this ambitious research by Cynthia Reinhart-King, Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor of Engineering, to other highly metastatic and...

On-the-move cancer cells prefer a “comfort cruise,” follow predictable paths of least resistance

Oct. 23, 2019—New research from a group of Vanderbilt biomedical engineers reveals that while cancer cells move quickly in metastasis, they’re rather lazy in which paths they choose. According to the researchers, migrating cancer cells decide which path in the body to travel based on how much energy it takes, opting to move through wider, easier to...
