About BIOMMED

Welcome to the Division of Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine (BioMMED) at the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in Baton Rouge, LA. 

We are engaged in innovative research to determine the molecular basis of various diseases, as well as to develop novel therapeutics for the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases.

BioMMED is a multidisciplinary research, support and development unit that provides centralized access to state-of-the-art equipment and advanced training in molecular and cell biology. 

In addition, BioMMED oversees two NIH:NCRR funded research cores: The COBRE-funded Molecular ImmunoPathology Core and INBRE-funded The Molecular and Cell Biology Core. 

The functions of these core laboratories are integrated within BioMMED and the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine facilities and consist of state-of-the-art equipment and support services that are jointly staffed by BioMMED and TNPRC faculty and personnel.

BioMMED is comprised of 4 service oriented centralized core laboratories:

  1. Gene Probes and Expression Systems Laboratory (GeneLab)
  2. Whole Animal In vivo Imaging Laboratory (WAIL)
  3. Viral Vector Laboratory (VVL)
  4. Protein and Antibody Production and Purefication Laboratory (PAPPL)

We hope that you will find our web site to be a useful window into our division and that you will contact us with any questions or comments that you might have.
