The New York Genome Center has confirmed that $105 million in funding to advance genomic medicine proposed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has been approved by the New York State Legislature as part of the 2014-15 fiscal year budget.

This funding will support a partnership between the University at Buffalo and the New York Genome Center to advance medical science in New York using Buffalo’s Center for Computational Research to enable genetic discoveries that aim to save lives by transforming how healthcare impacts patients.

The New York Genome Center will receive $55.75 million from the State and has committed to match it dollar for dollar with funds raised separately. The center is fully focused on implementing advanced genomic research and expanding its application through technology.
