Garwood Medical Devices to Hire 40 Through Buffalo Genomic Research Program

A Buffalo medical device startup intends to create 40 jobs over five years through a partnership with a University at Buffalo genomic research program, the university announced Thursday.

Garwood Medical Devices, which develops devices to treat chronic wounds and control joint-replacement infections, will receive $1.48 million in support from UB’s Buffalo Institute for Genomics and Data Analytics, known as BIG, as part of the agreement.

The institute is a key piece of a $105 million initiative, announced 2½ years ago by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, that links UB’s supercomputer to genomics researchers in New York City.
