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

Registration Now Open: OHRP Research Community Forum

Innovations in Research: Collaborations & Transformations
Wednesday, September 16, 2015
8:00 am - 6:00 pm
Global Center for Health Innovation
Cleveland, OH
Registration Fee: $125


The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) of the United States Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), along with University Hospitals Case Medical Center (UHCMC) and Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), will be hosting an all-day Research Community Forum at the Global Center for Health Innovation in Cleveland, Ohio.

This conference will feature a unique program focused on research innovation, with representatives from OHRP as well as experts from industry and academic institutions. The content of the program will benefit all members of the research enterprise.

Researchers, research coordinators, Institutional Review Board (IRB) members and staff, institutional officials, other public health service agencies, emerging bioscience companies entering human research and anyone with an interest in research involving human subjects should consider attending this informative and interesting one-day conference.

NEW Limited Submission: Simons Foundation: Investigators in the Mathematical Modeling of Living Systems

Key Deadlines: September 3, 2015, 5:00pm (CWRU Letter of Intent), October 28, 2015, 12:00pm EST (external application).

The Simons Foundation invites nominations for Simons Investigators in the Mathematical Modeling of Living Systems (MMLS). These Investigators are outstanding scientists, often with mathematics or theoretical physics backgrounds, who are now engaged in mathematical model- based research in the life sciences and to whom the Simons Foundation is dedicated to providing long-term support for their work.

Rationale and scope: New approaches in mathematically based modeling are making increasingly important contributions to the life sciences. The MMLS program aims to support such approaches and foster a scientific culture of theory-experiment collaboration similar to that prevailing in the physical sciences. To encourage young researchers to pursue this endeavor, the MMLS program will provide a long-term, stable base of support, enabling a focus on model-based approaches to important issues in the life sciences.

A broad spectrum of research areas within the life sciences will be considered, ranging from cellular-level issues of organization, regulation, signaling, and morphogenic dynamics to the properties of organisms and ecology, as well as neuroscience and evolution; however, preference will be given to areas in which modeling approaches are less established and, for this reason, bioinformatics- and genomics-related proposals fall outside the scope of the program. In all cases, preference will be given to work that relates closely to experiment, developing mathematical models that can explain data, suggest new classes of experiments, and introduce important new concepts.

Terms of Awards: An Investigator will receive research support in an amount initially set at $100,000 per year. An additional $10,000 per year will be provided to the Investigator's department. The award is administered through the institution at which the Investigator is appointed, and this institution will receive an additional 20 percent per year in indirect costs on the Investigator and departmental funds.

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.
