Jeremy Jacobs and family have given $30 million to University at
Buffalo's medical school, which will be named the Jacobs School of
Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. "A gift of this size, from
someone of Jacobs' stature, sends a message to other prospective
donors that UB's medical school is worth supporting financially,"
E. Cain, MD
, vice president for health sciences and medical
school dean. UB's new, downtown, state-of-the-art
will house 2,000 faculty, students and staff
when it opens in 2017.
