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.
