Tom Laue is known for his expertise in analytical ultracentrifugation and analytical electrophoresis. He is director of the Center to Advance Molecular Interaction Science at the University of New Hampshire, which develops unique instruments and first-principle methods to characterize molecular interactions. In 2001, Dr. Laue founded the Biomolecular Interaction Technologies Center as a National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center. BITC is a consortium of global pharmaceutical firms whose fees support university research and development of novel techniques and technologies for characterizing molecular interactions.
