There are about 30 million reasons that Chris Fisher and the career protection company he works for justified renting computer data storage space in a Baltimore warehouse recently. That's roughly the number of records that OnGuard Direct tracks from licensed professionals, such as doctors and nurses. So when OnGuard outgrew its in-house data facility, Fisher, a vice president with the company, looked to Northern Virginia for space given the region's reputation for technology. Unfortunately for him, so did many other customers.

While some sectors of Maryland's economy struggle to shake free of the Great Recession, the biotechnology parks adjacent to Baltimore's two top teaching hospitals stubbornly continue to add laboratories, offices and — most importantly for the city — jobs. The gains have been both large and small, and not always along the path or at the pace envisioned when the parks were created. But the growth is unmistakable, fueled by the critical mass of expertise, resources and discoveries at both the Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland Baltimore medical campuses.
