Jennifer Weiser, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Biomedical Engineering

FASEAS Dept of Biomedical Engineering (SEAS)


  1. B.S. Chemical and Biological Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
  2. M.S. Biomedical Engineering, Cornell University
  3. Ph.D. Biomedical Engineering, Cornell University

Research Interests:

Diabetic wound healing and controlled drug delivery. More specifically, developing new methods for the production of electrospun scaffolds based on polycaprolactone and chitosan. These materials will be useful for controlled delivery systems with combinations of agents to enhance the healing of diabetic wounds. Furthermore, a new method is being developed for associating nanoparticles to the fibers in the electrospun scaffolds, to allow for versatility in drug release.
