Construction Update: Global Vascular Institute

A major addition to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is beginning to take its final form.  Installation of the blue glass on the 10-story Global Vascular Institute and Clinical & Transitional Research Center/Incubator, a joint venture between the University at Buffalo and Kaleida Health is nearing completion. The $291 million facility aims to transform Buffalo into a “world-class health care destination”.  The center will form a collaborative effort between Kaleida Health physicians and UB researchers to provide advanced medical care, vascular disease treatment breakthroughs, and development of local biotechnology business opportunities. 

The two-year construction project, designed by Canon Design, will open in 2011 and advance the UB 2020 strategic plan to relocate the health sciences programs to downtown Buffalo.  It is estimated that this expansion of UB will draw 13,000 UB faculty, staff, and students to downtown.

I moved to Buffalo to attend Canisius College in 2007 and began writing for Buffalo Rising as a journalism intern in 2010. Working with Newell and meeting numerous entrepreneurs, activists and everyday folks who were working to make their city better made a huge impact on my decision to stay here. After witnessing all the positive development and grassroots initiatives happening in neighborhoods throughout the city, I was inspired to pursue a term of service in AmeriCorps and a career in Buffalo's non-profit sector. I currently work in the housing department at the Lt. Col. Matt Urban Human Services Center of WNY and am excited to be a part of their ongoing efforts to revitalize the Broadway Fillmore neighborhood. I also volunteer as the project coordinator for Artfarms Buffalo. I continue to write for Buffalo Rising because I love having the opportunity to stay connected to those working toward positive changes for the Queen City.
