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.


CWRU's Core Facilities site is live

CWRU's Core Facilities Support Committee is working to promote all of the university's diverse core facilities and service centers in an attempt to improve their visibility and promote collaboration with researchers and industry partners.

The committee is pleased to announce that their website http://research.case.edu/corefacilities is now available and users can find information about the most common core facilities in one place. Intended to work alongside the already available webpage for CWRU's Centers and Institutes http://www.case.edu/centers , the site strives to promote the amazing facilities our university offers.

If you would like more information, have a comment or have a core facility that you feel we have missed, please feel free to email the committee at CWRUcores@case.edu.

Ohio Department of Transportation

The Ohio Department of Transportation is now accepting submissions for Student Study projects expected to begin during fiscal year 2017 (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017). ODOT has the need to conduct small research studies that provide quick solutions to immediate problems. The limited scope of these projects does not warrant the time and expense required for typical research projects. Likewise, these studies do not require an extensive team of experts to research the issue. Instead, these projects are adaptable to an academic investigation that can be conducted by a college student under the guidance of a professor in the form of a Student Study.

The Student Study program provides students with an opportunity for real-world application of the lessons being taught in the classroom. It also enables ODOT to invest in the development of Ohio's future transportation professionals.

Submission Deadline: October 5, 2015 For more information visit the ODOT webpage.

 
The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts – 2015 William H. Johnson Prize

The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that seeks to encourage African American artists early in their careers by offering financial grants. The Johnson Foundation awards grants to individuals who work in the following media: painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation and/or new genre.

The William H. Johnson Prize is awarded annually to an early-career African American artist. For their purposes, "early-career" is a flexible term that should be interpreted liberally to include artists who have finished their academic work within twelve years from the year that a prize is awarded. For example, a person who finished their studies in 2003 is eligible to apply in 2015, but not in 2016. Age is not determinative, and artists who have not earned BFAs or MFAs are still eligible so long as they have not been working as a professional artist for more than twelve years.

The 2015 William H. Johnson Prize is $25,000 and the winner will be announced in December 2015.

Application Deadline: September 18, 2015

For more information visit the William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts webpage.

March of Dimes Prematurity Research Center Ohio Collaborative

The March of Dimes Prematurity Research Center Ohio Collaborative announces the 2015 funding cycle for its Innovation Catalyst Grant Program. The Collaborative was established in 2013 to study the unknown causes of preterm birth. Ohio partners in the Collaborative include Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, University of Cincinnati, Ohio State University, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Mount Carmel Health System, Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals and MetroHealth System of Cleveland. Dartmouth College, University of Iowa, University of South Florida, Vanderbilt University and Washington University in St. Louis are also participating sites. The Collaborative is currently focusing on five thematic areas: Evolutionary Synthesis of Human Pregnancy, Genetics of Unique Human Populations, Molecular Developmental Biology of Pregnancy, Progesterone Signaling in Pregnancy Maintenance and Preterm Birth, and Sociobiology of Racial Disparities in Preterm Birth. The Collaborative aims to foster further discovery across these thematic areas by encouraging new interactions of transdisciplinary researchers called Innovation Catalysts. A primary objective of this program is to optimize the ability of these teams to pursue new science with excellence and immediacy.

Eligibility: Open to faculty-level investigators from Collaborative sites and from other Ohio academic and medical institutions. Emphasis on state- and region-wide transdisciplinary interactions is encouraged.

The attached application should be completed which includes the following:

1. Proposal, including a Specific Aims page and up to six pages outlining the Research Strategy. Preliminary data are not required but may be included if available.

2. NIH Biosketch for principal investigator and key personnel.

3. Budget. A project period of up to 2 years may be requested. The combined budget for a two year project may not exceed $100,000 with a maximum of $50,000 requested in any single year. Faculty salaries (limited by NIH cap, up to 15% support) may be included. Only direct costs are eligible.

Application deadline is September 15, 2015. Please submit completed application to Stephanie Swart at Stephanie.Swart@cchmc.org by email as a single pdf document. Proposals will be evaluated for novelty & innovation, transdisciplinary approach and alignment with Collaborative research goals. Applicants should anticipate a response by November 6, 2015. Funding will begin January 1, 2016.

Questions may be directed to Joanne Chappell, Director of Operations, at Joanne.Chappell@cchmc.org or to Dr. Louis Muglia, Coordinating Principal Investigator, at Louis.Muglia@cchmc.org.
