First Wilson Fellows finish
With his 40-minute documentary New Strings in the
can, first-time director Gregory Shih is breezy when he
admits, "I went into filmmaking blindly--I didn't know
anything about all the technical stuff." He didn't know much
about the Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship
that would be paying for the film, either, because he was
one of the inaugural applicants for the independent study
opportunity that was introduced his freshman year. Learning
about it in an e-mail, he applied on a whim.
Biotech park to rise in East
In a vacant lot with the skyline of the JHMI campus
providing the background, Mayor Martin O'Malley and various
city, state and Johns Hopkins officials announced plans last
week for the long-anticipated $200 million East Baltimore
Development project, the cornerstone of which will be a
22-acre biotechnology research park.
The massive project--bounded by Broadway,
Madison and Collington streets and the railroad tracks--is
designed to radically transform the community north of the
medical campus by enhancing public safety, creating new
community and recreation services and providing new housing
and employment opportunities.
