Dr. Steve Soper, Director of the Center for BioModular Multi-Scale Systems (CBM2) at Louisiana State University (LSU) (left), Dr. Suzanne Lassiter and Dr. Musundi Wabuyele in the CBM2 DNA Sequencing Laboratory. 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.
