http://www.buffalo.edu/here.html Sixty-four years after moving to the University at Buffalo’s South Campus, the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences has returned to downtown Buffalo.
The massive $375 million, 628,000-square-foot building officially opened today at 955 Main St., just steps from where it was located from 1893 to 1953. Moving the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences downtown is a major milestone for the University at Buffalo that has been a decade in the making,” said UB President Satish K. Tripathi. A medical school that is just steps away from UBMD Physicians’ Group at Conve...ntus, John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital, Buffalo General Medical Center, Roswell Park Cancer Institute and all of our other partners will foster synergies that will expand and improve health care in Western New York,” he said.
