Columbia University of South Carolina
Esmaiel Jabbari is Full Professor of Chemical Engineering at University of South Carolina. He is internationally known for his work on synthesis and processing of biomimetic bio inspired materials for drug delivery and tissue engineering applications. His research interests include bio inspired materials, skeletal tissue engineering, stem cell encapsulation and delivery, self-assembled nanogels for growth factor delivery, drug targeting to cancer stem cells, and engineering the microenvironment of cancer cells. He has published extensively in the areas of biomaterials, drug delivery, and tissue engineering. He has edited four books, published two encyclopedia entry, 20 book chapters, over 110 refereed journal papers, over 100 refereed conference proceedings, presented over 60 invited seminars, and >200 presentations at national and International conferences. He received his PhD in Biomaterials from Purdue under the supervision of Professor Nicholas A. Peppas and his Masters degrees, in chemical engineering and chemistry, and his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech.
