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

Student Researchers and COI Disclosures

Student researchers who are listed on human subjects research protocols are required to have an Outside Interest Disclosure form on file with the Office of Research Administration (ORA). To help establish that the design, conduct, and reporting of research will be free from bias resulting from Investigator financial conflict of interests, disclosures are required not only for faculty and staff, but also student researchers.

For more information on the CWRU Outside Interest Disclosure process, see: https://research.case.edu/Compliance/COI.cfm.
