Faculty

Our dynamic faculty is dedicated to a program of the highest quality and to leadership at the forefront of the profession it serves. This dedication and the cooperative spirit of CBME faculty has fueled a superior level of productivity.

The school has developed a very broad base of external research support. A listing of recent research projects shows support from 17 different sources, including the National Science Foundation, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Energy, The U.S. Air force, The Department of Defense, The National Institutes of Health, the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology, and 10 companies. Every faculty member has an active research program and is receiving external funding.
