The Scientific and Technological Research Laboratories (S.T.A.R. Labs) is the largest private research and development organization in the world. S.T.A.R. Labs was established by scientist Garrison Slate to give researchers and inventors a place away from restrictive government and corporate environments. It quickly gained a reputation as the place to be for scientists and over the years has expanded from the original Chicago location to nationwide and internationally.

S.T.A.R. Labs offers research services on a contractual basis, working for both the public and private sector as well as the military. Though not known to mass produce any technology developed, S.T.A.R. Labs does license out its inventions to others for commercial use. Some S.T.A.R. Labs locations are known for working with the superhero community.


S.T.A.R. Labs has locations across the United States as well as internationally in Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan. Some of the more prominent S.T.A.R. Labs locations are:
