From University at Buffalo-SUNY News Center:

The eight-story, 540,000-square-foot building is the first project to be funded by a NYSUNY Challenge Grant provided by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo when he signed the NYSUNY 2020 bill into law in 2011.

“Today’s groundbreaking for a new medical school here at the University at Buffalo is yet another demonstration of the state’s commitment to revitalizing Western New York and bringing Buffalo back stronger than ever before,” Cuomo said. “The Western New York region is becoming one of the nation’s premier locations for health and medical sciences, and this new school will play a central role in bringing the best and brightest medical students, teachers, researchers and doctors here to Buffalo. In 2011, we launched the NYSUNY 2020 Challenge Grant Program because we believed that universities like UB could serve as a hub for job creation, economic growth and community revitalization. With today’s groundbreaking, we are continuing to see this vision become a reality.”
