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

In part, the notice states that NIH may withdraw any application identified during the receipt, referral and review process that is not compliant with the instructions in the SF 424 (R&R) Application Guide, the Funding Opportunity Announcement, and relevant NIH Guide Notices.

Examples of reasons an application may be withdrawn for non-compliance include:

  • applications that do not conform to page limit requirements

  • applications submitted after 5 pm local time
