Biomed Faculty Active in Translational Research
Dr. Elisabeth S. Papazoglou
Research Associate Professor
School of Biomedical Engineering, Science & Health Systems
Focus Area: Skin Bioengineering
Dr. Elisabeth Papazoglou is a Research Associate Professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems. She holds a Master's in Chemical Engineering from the University of Delaware, where her thesis focused on optimum manufacturing and performance of thin films with chemical vapor deposition. Her Ph.D. work in the Department of Macromolecular Engineering at Case Western Reserve University predicted bulk properties of medium and high molecular weight amorphous polymers based on thermodynamics. Dr. Papazoglou has 14 years of industry experience, working with multi-disciplinary teams on compatibilization and stabilization problems in polymers, and she has developed two laboratories for polymer characterization and controlled delivery formulations. She holds 5 patents and is the author of more than 40 publications and several book chapters in the areas of modeling, stabilization and compatibility.
Dr. Papazoglou's current research at Drexel includes skin research, specifically in the areas of wound healing, deployment of non-invasive technologies for skin characterization, and correlation of spectroscopic and imaging information to skin chemistry.
