Dr. Patrick GanzerPrincipal Research Scientist, Consumer, Industrial, & Medical products (CIM)Battelle

Dr. Ganzer received his BS in Neuroscience from King's College in 2008 (Summa Cum Laude), completed his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and Science from Drexel University in 2013, and finished his post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Texas at Dallas in 2017. He is now a Principal Research Scientist at Battelle Memorial Institute, the world's largest non-profit research organization located in Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Ganzer is currently the Principal Investigator for Battelle's Bioelectronic Medicine program – a research and development initiative focusing on developing bioelectronic medicine therapies for treating disease. His previous research at the University of Texas at Dallas utilized targeted vagus nerve stimulation to boost the effects of rehab and restore connections to paralyzed muscles in preclinical models of spinal cord injury, stroke, and peripheral nerve injury. Dr. Ganzer's work is now being translated to multiple clinical trial applications, and has been enabled by over $4 million dollars in funding from agencies such as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Wing's for Life Foundation, and the W.W. Caruth Jr. Foundation. With his talented teammates, Patrick is developing new neurotechnologies and bioelectronic medicines to treat patients suffering from dysfunction and disease.
