Cuomo envisions $100 million genome research facility
$50 million more of the Buffalo Billion will be used to improve infrastructure at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus to create a $100 million genome research program that will connect Buffalo to Manhattan. The project will attract even more business to the already prosperous medical campus housing data for the New York Genome Center; an independent, nonprofit genome sequencing center in Manhattan.
The announcement made by Governor Cuomo comes only 2 months after Buffalo Billion’s largest investment, a $225 million high tech manufacturing innovation hub at Riverbend; 9 months after an independent $375 million medical complex on the medical campus; and just over a year after the first $50 million of the Buffalo Billion was allocated to build a research facility, also located on the medical campus.
