A Toshiba data center has moved into the Science + Technology Park at Johns Hopkins, collaborating with the medical institution's radiation oncology department to improve treatment of patients with head and neck or lung cancers. The Toshiba Center for Big Data in Healthcare is based in the East Baltimore research park's Rangos Building at 855 N. Wolfe St. The data center will work with Hopkins researchers to use advanced image analysis and data mining to suggest what outcomes patients could expect from treatment plans based on the outcomes of patients with similar anatomy, physiology, pathology and history.

Harford County's Economic Development Advisory Board members have made no secret they feel the state's university system has been slow to respond to the needs – and opportunities – presented by the 2005 Base Closure and Realignment Act. Rather than wait, EDAB is taking action to help bring a world-class university research park to the region and, in all likelihood, to Harford County. Such research parks create campus-like environments where educational institutions, businesses and governments can work together.

Baltimore County's future depends on such projects as the University of Maryland Baltimore County research park recently approved by the county zoning commissioner.In recent years, local government officials have agonized over how to stop or at least slow the exodus of middle-class residents from Baltimore County to neighboring jurisdictions. The UMBC research park, with its emphasis on the burgeoning bio-tech industry, is hardly a cure-all, but it is a considerable step in the proper direction.

The Sun incorrectly reported yesterday that Baltimore County Executive Roger B. Hayden was considering layoffs of county workers. In fact, Mr. Hayden is cutting the budget but has previously said he does not anticipate layoffs.First there was a university president's vision -- a new kind of campus where a professor's discoveries could be translated into marketable products by eager young companies around it. A master plan followed, and a lead tenant emerged.Then there was a recession, the election of a slate of Baltimore County Council members who promised no new taxes, and the cries of angry neighbors.

Having been rebuffed twice by the Baltimore County Board of Appeals in seeking a zoning variance, officials with the UMBC Research Park Corp. are taking their case to court.Construction of the research park was to have begun this fall, but in July the board overruled a zoning commissioner's decision to grant the variance.UMBC asked for reconsideration of the ruling, but last week the board reaffirmed its decision and said UMBC must go back to the beginning of the county's approval process.

As zoning decisions go, it was a slam dunk. Baltimore County Zoning Commissioner Lawrence E. Schmidt couldn't have been more forceful in endorsing the University of Maryland Baltimore County's plan to build a research park on the Catonsville campus. "It is abundantly clear that this development plan should be approved," Mr. Schmidt said in his 27-page opinion.The commissioner's words seemed to possess a dual purpose. First, they affirmed the wisdom of a major project that not only will bring good jobs and tax revenues to the county but also will enhance UMBC's reputation among professors and students of the sciences.

Johns Hopkins University won another legal victory Thursday in its attempt to build a research park on farmland previously owned by a woman whose family sued the school, saying she would have opposed the development. A three-judge panel of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals affirmed a Montgomery County Circuit Court's decision that Hopkins's plan to develop the 138-acre Belward Farm complied with the agreement made with Elizabeth Banks in 1989. Banks had sold the land, which had been in her family for more than 100 years, to Hopkins for $5 million, a fraction of its market value.

A facility intended to be a "brain center" for U.S. weather and climate prediction activity opened Monday at the University of Maryland, College Park. Officials including Sen. Barbara Mikulski, led a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the 268,000-square-foot center at 2 p.m. The building houses more than 800 employees of NOAA's Center for Weather and Climate Prediction. The employees moved from an antiquated facility in Camp Springs, in southern Prince George's County, to the new $100 million NOAA facility on the campus of M-Square, a university research park.

Ken Malone and the board members of his startup biotech company gathered in a conference room at the University of Southern Mississippi last October to make a gut-wrenching decision. Ablitech Inc.'s funding was slowly drying up, and it couldn't find new sources in Mississippi. If the company stayed, it would wither away. The only option left for Ablitech, they decided, was for the fledgling company to move. "We called our shareholders together and said, 'Look, if we stay here, we're going to die,'" Malone recalled recently.

State economic development officials joined with leaders from the University of Maryland and China to open a new incubator and research park Friday near the College Park campus. The University of Maryland-China Research Park, the first Chinese-sponsored research park in the United States, aims to forge stronger ties between the campus, state business development leaders and companies in China that seek expansion in the U.S. C.D. Mote Jr., president of the University of Maryland, said Chinese officials had considered locating the park in other technology hubs in the United States, such as Southern California, North Carolina and Boston.

Getting the money was a headache. Coming to a compromise with community opponents, a battle. After all was said and done, the groundbreaking for the University of Maryland, Baltimore County's research park was 9 1/2 years later than originally scheduled. Just in time for the last national recession. But the nearly seven-year-old complex where business and academia intersect, tucked at one end of the Catonsville campus, is coming into its own. With 13 tenants and 550 jobs, both of the glassy buildings there are full.
