Bloomberg Cites Hunter’s Planned State-of-the-Art Health Sciences Center in State of the City Speech
New York, NY
February 14, 2013
"Never before in our city's history has there been so much university expansion and never before has there been so much scientific investment. This year, we'll finish construction on the next phase of the BioBat Center at the Brooklyn Army Terminal. We'll open a $50 million Genome Research Center in Lower Manhattan. At the East River Science Park, not only will we complete the next major phase of construction, a major pharmaceutical company, Roche, will move 200 research jobs from New Jersey there. And we'll move forward with our plans for a state-of-the-art cancer treatment facility and a new health science center for CUNY's Hunter College. All of this university and scientific investment is generating jobs - not only for those who will work in the labs, but for all those who will build and operate them and for all of the small businesses that will surround them.”
