Conference Location

The city of Buffalo, New York has emerged as a major player in the healthcare sector with the development of a 120-acre medical campus in downtown Buffalo and its surrounding neighborhoods. This campus includes a new Medical School building of the State University of New York at Buffalo, New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics, Buffalo Clinical and Translational Research Center, Hauptman Woodward Research Institute, Research Institute on Addictions, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Gates Vascular Institute, Buffalo General Hospital, and Buffalo Medical Group, among many other healthcare delivery and research facilities. The location of Buffalo will also afford us the unique opportunity to engage with some of the leading academics and practitioners in the healthcare community by way of a keynote address, a panel discussion, and a potential site visit to one of the major facilities in the Buffalo Niagara medical campus.
