Date:12/1/2011

Biomedical engineer Marissa Nichole Rylander, associate professor jointly appointed in the mechanical engineering department and Virginia Tech Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences, http://www.sbes.vt.edu/ at Virginia Tech is the recipient of the 2012 Y.C. Fung Young Investigator Award.

The Fung Award recognizes young investigators who are committed to pursuing research in the field of biomedical engineering and who have made substantial contributions to the field. The American Society of Mechanical Engineering's Bioengineering Division presents the award.

Rylander, who joined the Virginia Tech faculty in 2006, is conducting novel research in nanomedicine, cancer engineering, and tissue regeneration. Her innovative research combining nanotechnology, laser therapy, and dynamic imaging to study tumor progression and to develop novel cancer treatments led to the National Science Foundation naming her one of its CAREER Award recipients in 2010. She also received the 2008 Outstanding New Assistant Professor Award and the Dean's 2010 Faculty Fellow Award, both from Virginia Tech's College of Engineering, with both awards commemorating excellence in research, teaching, and service.

Rylander "has established herself as a rising star in biomedical engineering.Her dedication to her students is shown by her ability to recruit and promote their education as evidenced by numerous National Science Foundation and Fulbright Scholarships," wrote Ken Ball, professor and head of mechanical engineering, and Stefan Duma, professor and head of biomedical engineering, both at Virginia Tech, in their nomination letter of Rylander.

The CAREER grant is allowing Rylander to further develop and use a novel sensing system she co-invented call
