Director's Corner

Spring has sprung..no better indication than green grass returning, flowers flowering and the lovely shade of green dusting our cars. Thankful for the rain this month too! But best of all, April gets us that much closer to summer...and boy, do we have a lot for you!

CRP food truck fests kick off May 8, mark it on your calendars! We'll have more trucks and more fun loaded up for each fest. Each fest will again partner with a non-profit to help collect items in need for our community. All the details will be sent out soon--and you can always find the events and updated info on our Facebook page. 

Did you see the new CRP Amenities Map? Check out all there is to see/do/connect in the Park. We'll have printed copies at our events throughout the year as well. 

Speaking of new...the brand new Park website will debut by the end of this month. It will include CRP events, news, running loops, the amenities map, CRP tenant info, development info,  and so much more. We're super excited to showcase this one-stop-CRP-shop!! We also anticipate new CRP signage going up later this summer and some other new announcements coming soon. 

Several CRP company ribbon cuttings are planned for later this month and May. You can find those here. Good news is, the Park continues to grow--and is over 90% occupied!

RESEARCH

New blood test could lead to the end of routine colonoscopies
Al.com,  April 2018

It can be a lifesaving test, yet more than a third of patients recommended for it fail to follow up. But the test called a colonoscopy may become history thanks to research by Alabama scientists at HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology. The researchers announced they've found measurable indicators in blood plasma that could identify patients with colon polyps. Left unremoved, polyps can develop into colon cancer, one of most common and potentially deadliest forms of cancer.

Census shows Huntsville metro still growing rapidly, now state's No. 2
AL.com,  March 2018

Madison County's population, including most of the cities of Huntsville and Madison, grew by 4,700 people last year to reach 361,046, according to U.S. Census figures recently released. The new estimates show that, while most counties in Alabama are shrinking, Madison County grew 1.3 percent from 2016 to 2017, the fourth fastest growing county in the state.

New cybersecurity program will help prepare students in rural Alabama for careers in the field
UAH,  January 2018

The Center for Cybersecurity Research and Education at UAH announced a new initiative to introduce high school students in rural Alabama to cybersecurity. The Expanding Cybersecurity Innovative Incubator to Extended Demographics (ExCIITED) program is intended to give youths with little to no exposure to STEM fields the opportunity to gain insight into cybersecurity, leaving them more prepared for the demands of a cybersecurity-related degree program. The program is funded by a NSA grant. Currently, 20 students have been selected for the program and are working with CCRE researchers to complete weekly cybersecurity challenges. Ultimately, five of the 20 ExCIITED students will go on to join the CCRE’s Cyber Force Incubator (CFI), a collection of contract and grant-funded projects that provide internships for cybersecurity students.
