Centennial Research Park at Kent State University (Kent, OH) is representative of the university's long-standing commitment to technology research and development, technology transfer, and regional economic development. Conceived less than two years ago as part of the FlexMatters Initiative, Kent State's 44,000-sq-ft Centennial Research Park was initiated in 2007 and will be completely leased and fully operational with new and emerging businesses before the end of 2008.

Earlier this year, Pathogen Systems Inc. (Boulder, CO) announced its plans to become a primary tenant at Centennial Research Park. John West, PhD, director of the Liquid Crystal Institute at Kent State, says Kent State Centennial Research Park will provide Pathogen Systems with the ability to accelerate its growth and develop a product that will benefit the medical community.
