Convergent Engineering and Biomolecular Science (CEBS)

The 2023 Convergent Engineering and Biomolecular Science Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (CEBS COBRE) grows biomedical capacity at Boise State and the region. To launch this university center, Boise State collaborators in two colleges submitted a proposal to a highly competitive National Institutes of Health (NIH) program and won a $10.2M award.

Leadership. Jim Browning is the Director and principal investigator (PI). Ken Cornell is the Associate director and co-PI.

Research Must Align with COBRE Theme

Researchers who seek funding or resources from the CEBS COBRE must align with the theme for this COBRE. It is specifically to support research and clinical applications that use biomedical devices, sensors, and systems. Center personnel are also particularly interested in efforts that span engineering and the biomolecular sciences, and how teams can gain from convergence and the science of team science.

Use our Fabrication, Characterization, and Testing (FaCT) Core Research Facilities and Equipment

The FaCT Core provides biomedical engineering research support in the form of design, development, synthesis/fabrication, testing, and validation capabilities and services for devices, sensors, and systems to be used in foundational or applied biomedical and/or clinical-translational research. The core has four main facilities. For detailed information regarding capabilities, services, and rates, please click the links below.
