Stephenson Professor #2
Ph.D. Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey
Gallogly Hall 319
Peptide-based therapeutic and diagnostic agents for cancer treatment
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.
Ph.D. Nicolaus Copernicus University, Torun, Poland
Multimodal electro-encephalography and blood oxygenation level dependent functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging neuroimaging for study of human brain functions, dynamics, and neuromodulation.
Ph.D. University of Minnesota
Gallogly Hall 308
Brain Network Imaging in Healthy and diseased persons (such as autism, cerebral palsy, balance disorder, etc.); Broadly Accessible Functional Neuroimaging Tools; Neurorobotics for Infant Crawling.
Ph.D. University of Florida
Gallogly Hall 320
Directs SBME makerspace, studiospace and senior capstone curriculum; engages regional biotech industry.
Include tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, wound healing, biomaterials, and biomedical design.
Ph.D. University of Maryland
Gallogly Hall 307
Developing novel optical imaging techniques for early cancer detection, cancer therapy monitoring, functional brain imaging, surgical guidance and translational research.
Co-Leader for Stephenson Cancer Center
Ph.D. Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA
Research focus on development of contrast agents to identify cancer, theranostic nanoparticles, and Multispectral Optoacoustic Tomography (MOST) as well as translation of these discoveries and technologies into the clinical settings of breast, pancreas, ovarian, and other GI/GYN cancers.
Glioma pre-clinical models (adult and pediatric), hepatocellular carcinoma pre-clinical models, anti-cancer agents development, characterization and pre-clinical testing, molecular-targeted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for tumor growth biomarkers, advanced MRI techniques (vascular, structural and metabolites)
