Leslie C. Norins, a 1958 Johns Hopkins University graduate, has established a charitable trust to fund an exchange program for students and young science faculty between Hopkins and an Australian research center, the university announced Monday. In an effort to provide other young scientists with the same opportunities for international collaboration that he experienced after receiving his degree from the Hopkins Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, Norins is endowing the exchange program with the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne, a bioscience research center.

Charity often begins with avoiding the tax man.The charitable remainder trust is a vehicle considered by many mature Americans seeking an edge. First of all, it permits individuals to make a significant contribution to the charity of their choice. Secondly, it allows them to sell highly appreciated assets to avoid capital gains taxes, get a charitable tax deduction, receive income during their lifetime and efficiently transfer their estate to heirs. Such trusts are definitely not a household word.

Fisher filed a petition with Dauphin County Orphans' Court, which oversees charitable trust decisions in the state, to try to discourage the sale of Hershey by the charitable trust that controls the company's voting shares. "Potential buyers must know they can't just strike a business deal for Hershey Foods," Fisher said in a statement.

The Phoebe R. Berman Bioethics Institute at Johns Hopkins University has received a $9.9 million grant to establish a center for education and research on the fast-moving field of genetic science. The three-year grant from the Pew Charitable Trusts will "dramatically" increase the size and scope of the small institute, which was established in 1995 to examine ethical questions in medical research and patient care, said Ruth R. Faden, its executive director. The Genetics and Public Policy Center, to be located in Washington, will be directed by Kathy Hudson, assistant director of the National Human Genome Research Institute at the National Institutes of Health.

New drugs and consumer products are almost always tested for safety on rats, rabbits, chimpanzees and other animals, but advances in technology could bring an end to such experiments. Testing on animals could be phased out over the next couple of decades — putting to rest ethical, efficiency and reliability questions — if new systems are accepted by researchers and government regulators, according to several experts gathering to debate the subject this week. "We're trying to find out how we can save animals and make risk assessment of consumer products more reliable," said Dr. Thomas Hartung, director of Johns Hopkins University's Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing, a co-sponsor of the Washington conference called Animals, Research, and Alternatives: Measuring Progress 50 Years Later.

Robbing Peter to pay Paul is about more than Program Open Space ( "Open Space falls short," March 10). It's about mortgaging our future to play today. You talk about hundreds of millions dollars diverted from Program Open Space, but let's look at the big picture. According to the Pew Charitable Trust, the Maryland pension system has a $54,498,265 liability. While having funding to cover 80 percent of obligations is considered healthy, Maryland's fund has only 64 percent. To the dismay of State Treasurer Nancy Koop, the legislature appears poised to kick the can down the road and not to pay their obligations to the fund again this year.
