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

Remember to Travel Clean when Going Abroad this Summer

Many faculty, staff, and students will be traveling abroad over the summer. When it comes to traveling internationally with research data or materials, the CWRU community is urged to “travel clean”. That is, leave behind in the U.S. any research data, items, or technology which may be subject to laws requiring an export license or which may be vulnerable to loss, theft, or other privacy-related considerations. Take only those data that have been published or are in the public domain. Particularly consider whether there is research data on your laptop and other electronic devices before taking them overseas.

If you are unsure about any data or materials you plan to bring as you travel abroad, call Lisa Palazzo, Director of Export Control and Privacy Management, 368-5791, or Boyd Kumher, University Chief Compliance, Export Control & Privacy Officer, 368-0833, or email exportcontrol@case.edu.

 

Burroughs Wellcome Fund - Career Awards for Medical Scientists

The Career Awards for Medical Scientists (CAMS) is a highly competitive program that provides $700,000 awards over five years for physician-scientists, who are committed to an academic career, to bridge advanced postdoctoral/fellowship training and the early years of faculty service.

Proposals must be in the area of basic biomedical, disease-oriented, or translational research. Proposals in health services research or involving large-scale clinical trials are not eligible. The previously funded individuals (or researchers) are listed in the Grant Recipients section of this program.

The competition will employ a two-stage process. Preproposals will be reviewed and approximately 80-90 full proposal invitations will be sent by October 1, 2015.

All applicants will be required to complete a web-based questionnaire assessing their eligibility to apply for this award. If eligibility criteria are met, applicants will be automatically directed to the web-based pre-proposal form.

It is strongly recommended that potential applicants review the Request for Proposals prior to accessing the eligibility questionnaire.

Preproposal Deadline: August 5, 2015

Application Deadline: November 12, 2015
