Rabbany holds BSE cum laude, MSE and PhD degrees in bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania, and he developed and directed the first undergraduate bioengineering program on Long Island when he started teaching at Hofstra in 1990.
The major focus of his research is in the field of cellular and tissue engineering applied to the vascular system and in medical robotics, where he collaborates with researchers from Northwell Health.
He has published over seventy papers and patents in the areas of cardiovascular dynamics, biosensors, vascular biology, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical & Biological Engineering. He has received funding from the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute of Health, and the Office of Naval Research.
