Life Science Research is a core discipline at Battelle, offering CRO services in support of our client’s drug, diagnostic and device development efforts throughout the development lifecycle with emphasis on the very early stages.

Battelle has unique expertise in drug and device development, general toxicology, inhalation toxicology, safety pharmacology, medical devices, and biomarkers. We conduct studies via all routes of administration in all common species--rodent, canine, primate, mini-pig, rabbit, and others--in our new Life Sciences Research facility in the Columbus, Ohio area. Studies are supported internally by our analytical/bioanalytical and pathology departments. Our device group offers human-centric device design engineering services for devices such as auto-injectors, enabling our clients to develop integrated drug and delivery solutions.

Battelle’s Life Sciences Research group designs IND enabling nonclinical strategies and conducts IND-enabling safety/toxicology studies as well as chronic and carcinogenicity studies.
We go beyond the traditional with exploratory / mechanistic studies, such as in-depth safety pharmacology to evaluate cardiac risk of chemotherapeutic agents, to allow our customers to de-risk their candidates in the lead optimization / selection process. Our Biomarkers group has worked with a number of clients to develop and implement new assays and point-of-care diagnostics. Our laboratories are GLP compliant.
