Our Campuses

The Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is in downtown Buffalo, on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.

Our building, at 955 Main Street, aligns our medical education, research and clinical care with our clinical and research partners — including Buffalo General Medical Center, the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital, the Gates Vascular Institute, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute and UBMD Physicians Group practices in Conventus.

Our location builds on UB’s many successful research investments in biomedicine downtown, including UB’s New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, the Institute for Healthcare Informatics and the Buffalo Institute for Genomics and Data Analytics.

Advanced Learning Environments

Modular, state-of-the-art learning environments in our building embody an innovative teaching philosophy, one that’s increasingly being adopted by medical schools. Instead of traditional classrooms with rows of seats facing forward, rooms are instead constructed so that everyone in the class faces each other in a circle or can gather into small groups. White boards and electronic projection equipment are readily available throughout each room.

Our medical students have more chances to collaborate and share ideas with one another because they are closer to the clinical and research centers that make up the Buffalo academic health center.

Modern, Collaborative Research Facilities

Our research facilities, from the basic science laboratories to the school’s core facilities, were designed to promote collaboration between and among groups with varying expertise.

Featuring abundant natural light, our research labs have been equipped with the most current models of lab equipment, including incubators, biosafety cabinets, freezers, high-speed centrifuges, water purification systems and some of the most advanced instrumentation available in the field of imaging and cell sorting, which greatly extends research capabilities.

This impressive combination of modern scientific equipment, together with our multidisciplinary environment, provide our basic and clinical scientists with the capacity to remain at the forefront of competitive academic research.

North and South Campuses

We also have facilities on the North and South campuses, where we collaborate with our colleagues in other schools.
