WITH MORE than $30 million a year from the national tobacco settlement and the talent of top researchers -- at Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland Medical Center -- this city's reputation as a leader in the search for a cancer cure will grow. Aside from the prestige, of course, Maryland in particular might wish to be on the leading edge of research: Few parts of the nation have a higher incidence of cancer. Marylanders therefore will be deeply grateful to New York entrepreneur Sidney Kimmel for his $150 million gift to Hopkins.

Using the dedication of its new cancer center as a backdrop, the Johns Hopkins University and Medical Center launched the most ambitious fund-raising effort in its history, a $2 billion drive that is expected to reshape the university and help keep it on the cutting edge of research. Johns Hopkins' plans go beyond the reconstruction of its 52-acre medical campus - they include hundreds of millions of dollars for uses as diverse as renovations at the Homewood campus and more financial aid for students.

IT'S NOT much -- a pathetic 15 cents, to be exact -- but it's a start. A lifetime journey of college loan repayment began mid-morning in late November during a tour of Baltimore that included some notables resting at Green Mount Cemetery. The tour is a specialty of my editor at this newspaper, David Michael Ettlin, offered to staff newcomers -- even folks like me, who grew up here but never really saw the diversity of this town. The frenetic 60-mile drive ranges from the urban decadence of Guilford to the decay of the Gay Street corridor.

A New York clothing industry billionaire has donated $150 million to the Johns Hopkins University's cancer center, the largest single gift ever to the university. The gift by Sidney Kimmel, 73, who owns a fashion empire that produces brands including Polo Jeans, Ralph Lauren and Nine West, will enable what is already one of the world's best cancer centers to expand its research, recruit talented young scientists and build lodging for the families of cancer patients, hospital officials said at a news conference yesterday.

A few months after his best friend's daughter died of cancer in Baltimore, Sidney Kimmel asked after the doctor-researchers who had tried to save her. "I'd like to meet those guys," he told his friend Dick Butera. It was the start of an amazing philanthropic journey for the fashion industry billionaire, who started giving millions to cancer research. Now, about eight years later, he is one of the top cancer philanthropists, giving millions of dollars to the cause, including his biggest sum yesterday, as the largest gift ever received by Johns Hopkins.
