I'm confused, how is U of M creating thousands of new jobs by buying this? Something seems to be missing in this story.

EDIT:

Just found the answer in another article on this:

Quote:
U-M says it plans to recruit scientists to Ann Arbor to work in the former Pfizer labs. The U-M anticipates hiring 2,000 researchers and support staff during the next 10 years.
I guess I was shocked, because I hadn't even imagined that UofM would committ to something so huge. This is huge, if they can make it work. But, I'm confused. Is this essentially an expansion of the UofM Health System or some other department/agency? I guess I'm not getting the university's focus, here.
