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

CDC: Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) Increasing Educational Support for CJD Families and the Nation

The purpose of this program is to enhance support to family members of patients with a suspected or diagnosed case of human prion disease as well as enhance support for national surveillance for CJD and its emerging variants by (1) providing family members of such patients with easy access to consultations with persons experienced and knowledgeable about practical issues related to this disease, 2) facilitating educational and other mutually beneficial interaction of researchers with family members of CJD patients (3) increasing general awareness about CJD and (4) increasing the number of autopsies of suspected CJD cases.

Application Deadline: August 14, 2015.

FOIA Requests

CWRU researchers who receive requests for information that invoke the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) should contact the Office of General Counsel. This should be done immediately so the extremely short deadlines under FOIA can be met. General Counsel can work with the faculty member to take steps to protect proprietary or confidential information from grants and protocols prior to the release of the requested information. Individual researchers should not release information without first consulting with the CWRU Office of General Counsel.

For more information, contact the Office of General Counsel at: http://www.case.edu/president/counsel/contactus.html.

 
Community-Based Research Consult Service

The Case Center for Reducing Health Disparities is funded by the National Institutes of Health to offer a variety of services to faculty members, health care providers, student researchers, and community organizations. One of our many services include a Community-Based Research Consult Service to help researchers and organizations develop quality research.

The consult service has expertise in areas including, but not limited to: research project development, IRB application process, grants assistance and funding, survey development and refinement, needs assessment, data collection, program evaluation, best practices, focus group development, recruitment strategies, dissemination of findings, and Spanish Translation.

For additional information, visit the Center for Reducing Health Disparities website: http://www.reducedisparity.org/.

NIH Center for Accelerated Innovations at Cleveland Clinic

The NIH Center for Accelerated Innovation at Cleveland Clinic (NCAI-CC) Announces the Request for Applications (RFA) for the third funding cycle for Cleveland Clinic, Case Western Reserve University, The Ohio State University, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, and University of Cincinnati.

Funding is available for promising emerging technologies directed towards diagnosis, treatment or management of cardiovascular, pulmonary, blood or sleep-related disorders. We are seeking projects such as therapeutics (e.g. drugs, biologics), preventatives, diagnostics, devices, tools, etc., in order to facilitate their translation to commercialized products that improve patient care and enhance health.

The NCAI-CC will provide funding and project assistance to advance the development of high priority early-stage technologies within the mission areas of the NHLBI (cardiovascular, lung, blood and sleep disorders).

Expert assistance will be provided in areas required for early technology development, including commercial opportunity assessment, intellectual property, clinical and regulatory, reimbursement, business, legal and project management.

Letter of Intent Deadline: August 19, 2015

For more information visit the NCAI-CC webpage.

 
Interested in applying for an NCAI grant?

The NHLBI-funded NIH Center for Accelerated Innovations (NCAI) at Cleveland Clinic has recently established monthly one-on-one meeting opportunities for investigators interested in the NCAI program for developing their cardiovascular, lung, blood, or sleep disorder technologies.

These on-site meetings are designed to promote the program and encourage individual discussion opportunities with NCAI program managers. The NCAI is committed to providing ongoing engagement with investigators from across CWRU schools and departments to build a pipeline of projects for the program funding cycles. These information sessions will focus on investigator readiness and the funding requirements of the NCAI.

If you are interested in attending one of these sessions, please contact Denise Miller at 216-368-1158 or dmm192@case.edu to set up a meeting with one of the NCAI program managers. All meetings will be held on the CWRU campus starting Thursday, July 9th, and on the third Thursday of each month thereafter. Meetings will be scheduled in the afternoons.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Anne DeChant in the SOM Office of Translation and Innovation (akd6@case.edu,216-368-8867).
