Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland to Open a Major Data Research Center

The Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland plan to open a large computing centers in July 2015. The Maryland Advanced Research Computing Center will open with $30 million in state funding. The joint supercomputing center is made up of 19,000 processors and 17 petabytes -- or 17 million gigabytes -- of storage capacity, and will provide digital processing power to researchers from both institutions. It is roughly the size of 100 refrigerators. The center can help scientists study such complex areas as the human genome and climate change. The center is to be located near the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center campus in Baltimore but will also be accessible remotely to researchers.

Bayer HealthCare and Johns Hopkins University Collaborate to Develop New Ophthalmic Therapies

Bayer HealthCare and The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore have entered into a five-year collaboration agreement to jointly develop new ophthalmic therapies targeting retinal diseases. The partners will jointly work on the discovery and development of innovative drugs for the treatment of serious back-of-the-eye diseases that affect many people worldwide, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic macular edema (DME), geographic atrophy, Stargardt's disease, and retinal vein occlusion (RVO). The goal of the strategic research alliance is to accelerate the translation of innovative approaches from the laboratory to the clinic, ultimately offering patients new treatment options for several retinal diseases. Under the agreement, Bayer and the Wilmer Eye Institute of Johns Hopkins will jointly conduct research activities evaluating new targets and disease mechanisms, drug delivery technologies, and biomarkers for back-of-the-eye diseases with high unmet medical need. Both parties will contribute personnel and infrastructure to address important scientific questions. Bayer will have an option for the exclusive use of the collaboration results. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
