    • Education, Industry and Government – Creating an Integrated Life Science and Technology Park Dr. Collins Jones Biotechnology Coordinator Montgomery College Germantown MD
    • The Life Science and Technology Park at Germantown - Our Goal
      • To create a Life Science and Technology Park on the Germantown campus of Montgomery College which promotes the integration of industry and education with a Biotechnology focus
    • The Background – How we got here
      • Natural Progression
        • Ongoing Montgomery College Biotechnology and Information Technology Programs already work closely with the local and national Bioscience industry
      • Expansion
        • A need for additional incubator and technology space in Montgomery County and additional Bioscience educational space at Montgomery College
      • The Germantown Campus is the ideal location to merge the two
        • educational programs in place, commitment to Bioscience, close to NIH , FDA and other major research centers, centrally located on the I-270 corridor, available acerage
