Governor Cuomo Announces Continued Growth At Roswell Park Cancer Institute With Regional Economic Development Council Funding; RPCI Center For Personalized Medicine Established With CTG (NASDAQ: CTGX) Serving As Its Technology Partner

Senator Timothy Kennedy said, "Roswell Park has long been at the cutting edge of medical advancements in cancer treatment. This strategic investment will not only spur local economic activity, it will also help strengthen Roswell's position as a national leader in cancer research and patient care. The Regional Councils have proven to be vital tools contributing to each region's success. I commend Governor Cuomo for creating these councils, and for the hard work of all the participants to expand this industry in Buffalo."

Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes said, "Our Regional Economic Development Council has worked tirelessly to attract business and promote economic growth within the entire region. I congratulate both the council and Roswell Park Cancer Institute for providing much needed revitalization to our community, and applaud Governor Cuomo and Lieutenant Governor Duffy for their hard work and leadership in making this a reality."

Assemblyman Sean Ryan said, "This is excellent news for Erie County. By expanding Roswell Park Cancer Institute, we will not only provide job opportunities for Western New Yorkers, but will also contribute to the overall economic growth of the region. This is another great example of how New York State is supporting creativity and innovation in order to bring jobs to every community in the state, and I thank Governor Cuomo for his commitment to all New Yorkers."

Assemblyman Robin Schimminger said, "The expansion of Roswell Park Cancer Institute and the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is critical to building Erie County's economic future. The positive changes that have resulted from the hard work and dedication of the Western New York Regional Economic Development Council are evident today. The level of progress that has been made thus far is both impressive and encouraging to our region's economic upturn. I thank Governor Cuomo for spearheading this initiative and Lieutenant Governor Duffy for leading these hard working teams."

"I am proud to be a part of this announcement that will allow patients who come to Roswell Park Cancer Institute to have customized medical care and the resources necessary for more effective treatment," said Senator Mark Grisanti. "I applaud the hard work of WNY Regional Economic Development Council Co-Chairs Satish K. Tripathi, and Howard A. Zemsky along with Governor Andrew Cuomo for their leadership."

County Executive Mark Poloncarz said, "The Center for Personalized Medicine at Roswell Park Cancer Institute represents another step forward in health care here in Erie County, and will result in cancer patients getting individualized medical attention and care. I commend RPCI and Empire State Development for their vision in accomplishing this, and look forward to working with our partners in government and health care to continue to provide high-quality care such as this."
