The Science Team is the group, within the Fringe Division, assembled to investigate the Pattern.


Senior FBI Agent Phillip Broyles selected the team's members and presented their information to the Oversight Committee of the United States government. Its members include FBI Agent Olivia Dunham, Doctor Walter Bishop, Civilian Consultant Peter Bishop and FBI Junior Agent Astrid Farnsworth.

Nina Sharp, Executive Director of Massive Dynamic, another member of the Committee, assists the Team with equipment and information, although Olivia has begun to strongly question Nina's motives. The team is supported by other members of the Division, including FBI agent Charlie Francis who, although not a member of the science team, is number two behind Broyles in managing the Fringe Division.

The current science team is not the first one, Broyles expressed his wishes that the current team will "have more success than the last one". The team, as far as we know, is unaware of the Committee.

Unofficial members:
