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.

 
Procter & Gamble Company (P&G)

The Procter & Gamble Fund Higher Education Grant Program has been established to provide support for efforts of regionally accredited U.S. colleges and universities that will better prepare students for success in business. Grants will be provided for specific projects or programs, not for operating support. Examples of eligible projects include, but are not limited to:

  • Improving curriculum to be at the cutting edge in relevance and effectiveness;
  • Fostering and enabling leadership opportunities and learning;
  • Creating a learning environment that encourages and enhances innovation and creativity;
  • Strengthening diversity in thought, participation and ongoing interaction.


In fairness to all participating institutions, there is a limit of two applications per discipline (i.e., two applications from the School of Business, two applications from the School of Engineering, etc.). For example, the program will accept an application from a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and an application from a Professor of Chemical Engineering from the same College/University. If the program receives more than two applications from the same discipline, the program will ask the applicant's Dean to select the two that will be submitted for the competition.

Based on the scope of the project, grants ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 will be awarded. Awards are for one year only. The grant money must be used as described in the grant application and should not be use to cover overhead cost, stipends or fellowships. One college or university may apply for multiple grants supporting multiple programs but may not receive more than $50,000 in one year.

The application deadline is September 30, 2015

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

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation – 2016 Future of Nursing Scholars
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has released a Request for Proposals for its 2016 Future of Nursing Scholars program, an annual program that aims to help develop the next generation of Ph.D.-prepared nurse leaders committed to long-term careers that advance science and discovery, strengthen nursing education, and bring transformational change to nursing and health care.

The three-year program aims to ensure the nation has a diverse and well-trained leadership and workforce committed to building a culture of health across the country. To that end, Future of Nursing Scholars are encouraged to form long-lasting relationships and networks with other scholars in the program, as well as with scholars and fellows in other RWJF programs -- situating them as a formidable group of healthcare leaders.

Schools with research-focused Ph.D. programs in nursing are eligible to apply. Selected schools will choose the Ph.D. students to be designated as Future of Nursing Scholars and must be committed to facilitating the scholar’s completion of the Ph.D. degree in three academic years. The scholars selected also must be committed to completing their Ph.D. program in three academic years. Selected scholars must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States at the time of award.

For the 2016 cohort, the program will support up to seventy-five scholars. Each scholar will receive $75,000 to be used over the three years of the program. The award must be matched by $50,000, which can be in-kind, from the school.

Application Deadline: September 17, 2015
