Battelle, Nanotherapeutics Team Up to Develop Medical Countermeasures for DoD - top government contractors - best government contracting eventBattelle and Nanotherapeutics have forged an alliance to research, develop, test and evaluate medical countermeasures for the Defense Department to protect military personnel from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats.

The partnership will focus on developing vaccines and therapeutic products against CBRN weapons that pose health risks to U.S. troops deployed worldwide, Battelle said Wednesday.
