Patrick Ganzer, Ph.D., is advancing medicine at the interface between the nervous system and technology. His work is helping patients recovering from spinal cord injuries, stroke and other nervous system disorders regain lost function and independence. Patrick joined Battelle in May of 2017 as a Neurotechnology Research Scientist. He is working on the cutting edge of bioelectric medicine, neural stimulation, neural signal processing and brain/machine interface technologies. Currently, much of his time is devoted to extending the applications for Battelle NeuroLife®
