Helping undergrad engineers hack the mysteries of grad school

To an undergraduate student slogging their way through such curricular masterpieces as organic chemistry, heat transfer, and fracture mechanics, grad school may very well seem like a beast lurking in the shadows of some far off future, the dragon at the end of a hero’s arduous journey.

Rossin Connection Podcast: The Astronaut, Part 1

Terry Hart '68, '88H, is a Lehigh alum and a professor of practice in mechanical engineering and mechanics. He's also a former telecommunications executive, fighter pilot, and astronaut. In part one of a two-part interview, Hart talks about the event that initially captured his imagination about space, the edge engineering gave him as an Air Force pilot during the Vietnam War, the most fortuitous failure of his life, and why Sally Ride was his favorite copilot.

Simpler, high-accuracy method detects rare circulating tumor cells

Metastasis―the development of tumor growth at a secondary site―is responsible for the majority of cancer-related deaths. It occurs when the primary tumor site sheds cancerous cells which are then circulated through the body via blood vessels or lymph nodes. These become seeds for eventual tumor growth at a secondary location in the body.
