“‘The expanded partnership between UW and PNNL will create tremendous new opportunities for both organizations,’ said Ed Lazowska, professor of computer science and engineering. ‘Big data is transforming the process of discovery in all fields. UW and PNNL have significant and complementary strengths.’ Lazowska leads the eScience Institute, created in 2008 to support data-driven discovery at the UW. Many of the roughly dozen UW faculty who will be involved with the new group at its launch are eScience Institute affiliates.”
