The University at Buffalo will formally introduce a powerful new workforce development program at a news conference schedule for 10 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2009) at UB's New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences, 701 Ellicott Street (2nd floor), Buffalo.

iSciWNY (pronounced I-sigh-Western New York) is a comprehensive life-sciences workforce development program dedicated to preparing all Western New Yorkers, not just scientists, for new positions in Buffalo Niagara's growing life sciences industry.

Western New York's life sciences' economy is rich with employment possibilities in all sectors from marketing and accounting to manufacturing and assembly to information technology. What WNY needs is a diverse, well-trained, life sciences workforce.

iSciWNY is supported by generous donations from the Bank of America and Life Technologies Foundation in combination with grants from the New York State Department of Labor.
