Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences
A major anchor of UB’s downtown presence, the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences opened on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus in 2017. One of the signature gestures of the Comprehensive Plan is the realization of the Downtown Campus as a new home for the Health Sciences schools.
The goal is to bring together the three components of medical education, bio-medical research and patient care into one physical location in Western New York, the creation of a true Academic Medical Campus. This integrated program will place emphasis on patient outcomes, foster advancements in medical education and will provide the setting for new breakthroughs in medical research. The Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is poised to grow in student enrollment, faculty and staff. With a new home to facilitate its ambitious plans for the future, the School will continue to be a flagship institution for the University at Buffalo.
The project is planned to be approximately 628,000 GSF and will hold the Dean’s administrative functions, biomedical education, basic science departmental space and most of their research and faculty. The new Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is being designed with the following priorities in mind:
- Create a "front door" to UB, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and the entire BNMC
- Emphasis on student learning environment both formal and informal
- Emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration among departments
- Create an environment which supports high level funded research
UB is dedicated to design excellence of the built environment and is committed to ensuring that the building meets sustainability goals and positively contribute to the campus experience. The new Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences will be a signature building for the Downtown Campus and the entire University. The architecture of the new building will represent the university’s aspirations for the Downtown Campus to be a world class Health Sciences Campus.
