UW formally thanked the Washington Research Foundation yesterday, at a reception at the President’s home, for their extraordinary and transformational $31 million commitment to four leading-edge research initiatives at the University of Washington.
Computer Science & Engineering is integrally involved in two::
- A $9.3 million award to the University of Washington eScience Institute, committed to UW’s leadership in data science – both in advancing the methodologies, and in putting these advances to work in a broad range of fields. CSE’s Magda Balazinska, Carlos Guestrin, Jeff Heer, Bill Howe, and Ed Lazowska are among the PIs, as well as CSE adjunct faculty members Cecilia Aragon, Emily Fox, and Bill Noble.
- A $7.2 million award to UW’s Institute for Neuroengineering, which is closely linked to our data science efforts. CSE’s Rajesh Rao serves on the Executive Committee and is the Director of the UW NSF Engineering Research Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering.
Thank you WRF!
