An article on the front page of the Buffalo News reports on the new downtown home of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, which will be dedicated on Dec. 12 and open to students on Jan. 8. The article quotes Michael Cain, vice president for health sciences and dean of the Jacobs School, and Kelly Hayes McAlonie, UB director of campus planning. "Hundreds of people discussed and gave ideas about what the medical school should look like, and what the research and education venues should be and how they should be configured," Cain said. "There was a desire to reunite education and research and clinical practice into one campus, and by doing that, it would be strengthening all aspects of the medical community," Hayes McAlonie said.
