Welcome from the Vice President for Research

CWRU researchers are among the most distinguished in the world. We have 16 Nobel Laureates among current and former faculty and alumni, 4 members of the National Academies of Sciences, 7 members of the National Academy of Engineering, and 8 members of the Institute of Medicine. We also partner with artistic and cultural institutions on a broad range of projects that make important scholarly contributions in the humanities and social sciences.

Extraordinary research requires an outstanding infrastructure. Our Office of Research & Technology Management provides support to seek out grant funding, to facilitate industrial sponsorship, and to transfer university technologies to the marketplace. This is a place for people driven to make a difference, and our office exists to help them succeed.

Contact us. We want you to see what our campus can offer.

Dr. Suzanne Rivera

National Institutes of Health – Transformative Research Award Program

The Transformative Research Award, run under the NIH Common Fund, was established to support exceptionally innovative, high-risk, and/or unconventional research projects that have the potential to create or overturn fundamental paradigms or otherwise have unusually broad impact. Such projects, due to their inherent risk, may be more difficult to support using a standard NIH R01 grant, but due to their potential impact, may merit pursuing. Little or no preliminary data are expected, but projects must clearly demonstrate the potential to produce a major impact in a broad area of biomedical or behavioral research.

Letter of Intent Deadline: September 9, 2015

Application Deadline: October 9, 2015

Limited Submission Reminder: NIH: Advancing Health Disparities Interventions Through Community-Based Participatory Research

Key Deadlines: June 22, 2015, 5:00pm (Letter of Intent Deadline), August 3, 2015, 5:00pm EST (Agency Submission Deadline).

The overarching goals of the Community-Based Participatory Reserach (CBPR) Program are to enhance community capacity in research for which they will directly benefit, support collaborative intervention projects addressing health disparities, and accelerate the translation of findings into improved health and health outcomes. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support promising community interventions using CBPR principles and approaches aimed at reducing and eventually eliminating health disparities.

Applicants are encouraged to consult with their Associate Deans for Research prior to internal submission to assure they meet eligibility criteria and their projects meet stated program objectives.

Internal deadline for submission of a one-page Letter of Intent (LOI) is no later than 5:00 p.m. on June 22, 2015. The letter of intent should be a one-page explanation of what the researcher wants and how it meets the funding criteria. Materials should be submitted as a PDF attachment to an email sent to Dr. Suzanne Rivera at suzanne.rivera@case.edu.

Number of Applications Allowed: One

For more information on this limited submission opportunity, visit the Office of Research Administration website.

 
2014 COI Disclosure Status Reflected in Sparta System

The deadline for submission of CWRU 2014 Outside Interests Disclosure forms was April 1, 2015. The Sparta System reflects those who have submitted their 2014 disclosure to the Conflict of Interests (COI) Office.

Please be aware, however, that if individuals listed as key personnel on proposals in Sparta have not completed the 2014 Outside Interests Disclosure process, those individuals will need to do so before proposals can continue in the approval workflow. It is important to allow enough time to address any instances of overdue disclosures when submitting a proposal.

For assistance with the disclosure process or any questions, contact the staff of the Conflict of Interests Office at 216-368-0838 or 216-368-5963 (rxc39@case.edu).

 
Department of Defense

The Department of Defense has announced the following new funding opportunity:

Department of the Army - USAMRAA

DEFENSE UNIVERSITY RESEARCH INSTRUMENTATION PROGRAM (DURIP)

 
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is seeking applications that propose research focused on developing tools and models that compare the life-cycle costs of green, grey, and hybrid forms of water infrastructure. One of the high-priority research areas identified by the EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) is developing tools to protect the quantity and quality of water. Under the 1987 amendments to the Clean Water Act (CWA), the EPA established a program to address storm water discharges including the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program which regulates point sources such as pipes and sewers that discharge directly into surface waters. Under the CWA, communities need to address stormwater management requirements as they consider their aging water infrastructure systems, rate payer expectations, and other considerations important to the community. Green infrastructure is an emerging technology with much potential to help many communities

Research is needed to assist communities throughout the United States in evaluating investments in green infrastructure that can improve stormwater management in multiple ways, including reducing the volume of stormwater entering the sewer system to decrease the costs of grey infrastructure updates, and by managing stormwater runoff as a resource, not a waste, to enhance scarce water supplies.

Application Deadline: July 2, 2015
