Harvard has revamped its proposal for a new science campus in Allston to include an "enterprise research campus" with as many as 12 buildings for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and venture capital companies, alongside the planned 700,000 square feet of space for labs and academic researchers, report the Boston Globe's Liz Kowalczyk and Megan Woolhouse. The addition of space for industry partners indicates Harvard is moving more toward encouraging partnerships between commerce and academia, to effectively compete with MIT's new integrative cancer research institute, Woolhouse and Kowalczyk say. Harvard is still working out which researchers will be moved to the new campus.
