The first building in a planned 10-building research complex for the University of Maryland, Baltimore opens in October, across the street from the University's main campus. The $300 million BioPark, which will commercialize biomedical technologies developed at the University, is expected to create 2,500 jobs and revitalize the long abandoned neighborhood around it. "The significance of the first building is that the biggest challenge is to get something like this off the ground and prove that it can happen," said James Hughes, the University¹s vice president for research and development.
