Buffalo Showcases its Biomedical Industry
Sunday, October 18, 2015
The out-of-towners saw -- first-hand -- how much progress Buffalo has made. Syracuse-based Med-Tech brought its annual conference here to give attendees a chance to experience the bio-med community that has bloomed at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. Lieutenant-Governor Kathy Hochul says the state's significant investment in Buffalo is paying off.
"I was really proud to talk about the Governor's initiatives, particularly the Buffalo billion and how it is transforming the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus," Hochul said. "There's so much going on."
Hochul says she was told by one bio-med insider that what he saw in Buffalo rivals what's happening in California. Med-Tech President Jessica Crawford said the industry is creating thousands of high-paying jobs.
