Advancing Life Sciences

Although we’ve long been a successful home to medical advances, like the implantable pacemaker patented here in 1962, our assets continue to spell success for this innovative industry. And with the world-class Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus growing by the day, more and more medical and life sciences professionals are finding Buffalo Niagara to be the ideal place. R&D activity is healthy in our region, bringing in approximately $350 million in research funding, with two thirds dedicated to life sciences, led by the University at Buffalo. We also rank fourth in the nation on a per-capita basis of life science workers – 15% of the degrees conferred by the region’s approximately 30 institutions of higher education are in life sciences.
