Sen. Schumer endorses expansion of BNMC Innovation Center

Sen. Charles Schumer has publicly committed to working with the U.S. Economic Development Administration to develop financial support for conversion of the remaining building of the former Trico Products windshield-wiper plant in downtown Buffalo into the second phase of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus Innovation Center.

The BNMC’s Thomas Beecher Jr. Innovation Center is a supporting member of our association. The initially renovated wing of Trico offers office and laboratory incubator suites on a month-to-month basis, and the remainder of the building houses life-science companies on short-term, flexible leases. The Innovation Center is the hub of commercial presence at the BNMC.

For more information see Sen. Schumer’s news release or coverage in The Buffalo News and Buffalo Business First. The News has also editorially endorsed the expansion.
