With the New Year upon us, we decided to take a “cup half-full” approach in this issue of T&ID. Andrew Shapiro’s examination of the Bio Sciences industry showcases successful site selection strategies, while Jennifer Alten explores regions in R&D that are flourishing. And Didi Caldwell and John Sisson ring in the New Year with some resolutions designed more effectively manage siting decisions.
Amidst this backdrop of optimism and inspiration, we take a closer look at the catastrophic tornado events that happened this past spring. As Juli Anne Patty discovers, Joplin, Missouri and Tuscaloosa, Alabama give real meaning to the term recovery. The resiliency and resolve of these communities to re-build and continue to foster new industry should give hope for us all that recovery isn’t just a word, but an attainable goal that happens over time with dedication and diligence.
