CBM2 was the centerpiece of Louisiana's 2004 Research Infrastructure Improvement award. Their DNA Sequencing Lab is developing a modular-based microsystems approach for analyzing the primary structure of the human genome. Recently funded by a 3 year National Science Foundation (NSF) EPSCoR grant (EPS 03-46411), CBM2 is a Center of Excellence for micro/nanofabrication, with applications in genomics, proteomics and pharmaceutical research at LSU. The center, in conjunction with the Center for Advanced Microstructures and Devices (CAMD) at LSU, contains state-of-the-art equipment for the fabrication of high-aspect ratio microstructures in a variety of materials (glass, polymers, metals and ceramics, to name a few) over several different size domains (nm to mm). CBM2 also has expertise in fluidics (simulation/modeling), material characterization/modification, and reagent development. CBM2 has a service program in micro/nanofabrication to assist outside users. To learn more, visit the CBM2 Web site. (Date of Image: 2006-2007) [One of 3 related images. See Next Image.]
