Buffalo, N.Y.—The John R. Oishei Foundation has made a gift of $5 million to the University at Buffalo to support construction of the new UB School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences building on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
Federal funding is still the gold standard for biomedical
research but during the past decade and especially as a result of
sequestration, many young investigators are conducting research
that is supported largely by private, not government,
English poet Robert Graves reportedly once said:
“There’s no money in poetry, but then there’s no
poetry in money either.” He was wrong, at least when it comes
to beloved American poet Robert Frost. In two months, the
University at Buffalo raised more than $65,000 to create an
endowment to support its prized collection of Frost materials.
A top national expert – who also happens to be University
at Buffalo graduate – will discuss the state of the U.S.
economy on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at the UB Clinical and Translational
Research Center (CTRC)
