Peggy and Charles Stephenson School of Biomedical Engineering

As we continue to grow the new Peggy and Charles Stephenson School of Biomedical Engineering, we continue to build an outstanding team of faculty members. 

Biomedical engineering is an interdisciplinary field. In addition to the SBME faculty members listed below, our students have the opportunity to perform thesis research with facutly members from the OU Institute for Biomedical, Engineering, Science and Technology.
