school in downtown Buffalo. The article notes that when finished,
the eight-story, $375 million building will be a key component of a

facilities to one location, and quotes UB President Satish K.
Tripathi and Michael E. Cain, vice president for health sciences
and dean of the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. A
