Biomedical Nano-Engineering Laboratory
The Wilhelm Lab is affiliated with the Stephenson School of Biomedical Engineering (SBME) at the University of Oklahoma (OU).
The lab was founded in Fall 2017 and is led by Dr. Stefan Wilhelm. Our lab space is in Gallogly Hall at the OU Norman Campus. Our research interests include engineering and design of nanomaterials for use in biomedical applications and clinical translation.
