The new partners in USC’s Innovista research campus say they are close to signing leases with IBM as well as British business software producer Regus International.

Kale Roscoe of Detroit and Robert Heath of Philadelphia — who jump-started the University of Kentucky’s Coldstream research campus — also say they will start construction of the first of two long-awaited private research buildings in four weeks.
