Esmaiel Jabbari is Professor of Chemical Engineering at University of South Carolina. He is internationally known for his work on synthesis and processing of biomimetic bioinspired materials for drug delivery and tissue engineering applications. He has published extensively in the areas of biomaterials, drug delivery, and tissue engineering. He has edited four books, published one encyclopedia entry, 18 book chapters, over 90 refereed journal papers, over 80 refereed conference proceedings, presented over 30 invited seminars, and more than 200 presentations at National and International conferences.
He was elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering AIMBE in 2013. He received the Berton Rahn research prize award in Orthopedic Research from the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen AO Foundation in 2012. In 2008 he received the Stephen B. Milam Research Award from the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Foundation for contribution to auto-inductive biomaterials for repair of maxillofacial and cranial tissues. He is the North America Editor of the Journal of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering and serves on the Editorial Board of International Journal of Biomaterials and International Journal of Biomedical Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. He is a member of the Outstanding College Students of America, the New York Academy of Sciences, Who is Who in Engineering Education, and Who's Who in America. He is also a member of honorary engineering society Tau Beta Pi, Chemistry Society Phi Lambda Upsilon, and Research Society Sigma Xi.
