Counterfeiting of electronics and components for military systems is widespread, posing an enormous challenge for designers and users.

Over the course of a five-year study, a paralyzed man was able to regain conscious control of his hand, wrist, and fingers by using a brain-computer interface technology from Battelle called NeuroLife.

Next year, scientists will embark on a 30-year initiative to track changes in the country’s ecosystems.

Battelle scientists are in the midst of the three-decade scientific mapping effort that became fully operational this year. The company showed off the tools of the trade Tuesday at the Ohio State University Airport.

Battelle is set to study commercial off-the-shelf fluorine-free fire suppression foams to validate if they have met military specifications.

Finding answers for families is what makes the second annual “Ohio Missing Persons Day” on Sunday so important, Forney said.

Researchers at the Columbus, Ohio-based Battelle Memorial Institute are developing a process to find signatures common to various sources of PFAS contamination.

Lou Von Thaer didn’t know any engineers growing up outside Topeka, Kansas, so he couldn’t quite see what exactly they did. But he knew he liked taking radios and record players apart and putting them back together.

DARPA, the Department of Defense's research arm, is paying scientists to invent ways to instantly read soldiers' minds using tools like genetic engineering of the human brain, nanotechnology and infrared beams.

Navy veteran Todd Alles educated kids for years as a teacher and administrator for schools throughout Ohio. In his latest role, as a National Veterans Memorial and Museum volunteer tour guide, his goal hasn’t changed. But now he’s teaching children about people like himself and how the military affected their lives.

COSI, joined by Battelle, NASA, local businesses, organizations, universities and STEM leaders will host over one hundred community events showcasing science across Central Ohio as part of the inaugural COSI Science Festival May 1-4, 2019.

Central Ohioans can take part in hands-on STEM demonstrations at more than 100 locations throughout Franklin County. It ends Saturday with the Big Science Celebration outside of COSI.
