  • In the 16th Century, Francis Bacon—an Englishphilosopher, statesman, scientist, lawyer, jurist and author established deductive methodologies for scientific enquiry… and he said something that is more true than ever– Knowledge is Power
  • So what is Kno.e.sis about– it is about stepping away from the concerns of storing and searching data, to that of improving human experience, human effectiveness, human performance, human productivity.
  • Our 15 faculty from 4 colleges are already engaged in multiple jointly funded grants, pending proposals, serving on interdisciplinary programs like Biomedical Sciences PhD program and on committees of students of colleagues.
