Bioscience Connecticut

uchc-bioscience.jpgThe UConn Health Center is an integral part of Bioscience Connecticut, the initiative led by Governor Dannel Malloy to spur the state’s economy and create a thriving bioscience sector for sustained economic growth. Bioscience Connecticut, which became law during summer 2011, is projected to create thousands of short-term construction jobs as well as thousands more long-term jobs in the biosciences, while establishing a vibrant research collaboration among the Health Center’s Farmington campus and the University’s main campus in Storrs.

The $864-million plan calls for revitalizing the UConn Health Center’s campus, expanding the medical and dental classes, building new business incubators, creating centers of excellence with neighboring institutions and more. Expansion plans include building a new world-class patient tower, an outpatient ambulatory center and parking garages. Existing facilities will undergo major renovation, making room for updated infrastructure, state-of-the-art research laboratories and modern educational spaces. Through Bioscience Connecticut, business incubator space at the University will double.

Additional prominent clinician-scientists will be recruited to the faculty to contribute toward the Health Center’s academic, clinical and research programs. In an effort to address the worsening primary care doctor shortage, UConn and the state are developing a loan forgiveness program for medical and dental students who pursue primary care careers in Connecticut.
