LEWISTON, N.Y. - Former Sabres owner Tom Golisano returned to Western New York Wednesday to help cut the ribbon on Niagara University's new B. Thomas Golisano Center For Integrated Sciences.
The Center is the result of an $83 million capital campaign, which got a huge initial boost from Golisano. The Paychex Chairman made a $10 million lead commitment to get the financial ball rolling.
The 50,000-square foot facility houses 18 laboratories, which are supported by designated areas for nuclear resonance, tissue culture, imaging, plant growth, radioisotope storage and numerous other functions. In short, it will open the door for a wide variety of scientific research for Niagara University students.
