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," said Michael E. Cain, MD, vice president for health sciences and medical school dean. UB's new, downtown, state-of-the-art medical school will house 2,000 faculty, students and staff when it opens in 2017.
