Claudia Fischbach-Teschl wins 2023 CMBE Momentum Award

Congratulations to professor Claudia Fischbach-Teschl, winner of the 2023 CMBE (Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering) Momentum Award, recognizing a BMES (Biomedical Engineering Society)-CMBE SIG member who is at the mid-career stage and has made a substantial impact on their field that is related to cellular and molecular bioengineering.

Dr. Fischbach will give an award talk during the 2023 BMES-CMBE Conference.

Claudia Fischbach-Teschl is the Stanley Bryer 1946 Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University, Director of Cornell’s Physical Sciences Oncology Center (PSOC) on the Physics of Cancer Metabolism, and Associate Director of Cornell Nanoscale Science and Engineering Facility (CNF). She utilizes engineering tools and strategies to gain a better understanding of how tumor-microenvironment interactions regulate cancer development, progression, and therapy resistance with a focus on cell-extracellular matrix interactions. She is a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), the Biomedical Engineering Society, and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany. She served on the Tumor Microenvironment study section, is a Senior Editor of Cancer Research, and serves on the Editorial Board of the ACS journal Biomaterials Science and Engineering and Tissue Engineering. She is an advocate for interdisciplinary cancer research (e.g. as Chair of the 2019 Gordon Conference on the ‘Physical Science of Cancer’) and has written Op-Ed articles on this topic including in Scientific American.
