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

NIH: Advancing Health Disparities Interventions Through Community-Based Participatory Research

The overarching goals of the Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) Program are to enhance community capacity in research for which they will directly benefit, support collaborative intervention projects addressing health disparities, and accelerate the translation of findings into improved health and health outcomes. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support promising community interventions using CBPR principles and approaches aimed at reducing and eventually eliminating health disparities.

The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts – 2015 William H. Johnson Prize

The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that seeks to encourage African American artists early in their careers by offering financial grants. The Johnson Foundation awards grants to individuals who work in the following media: painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation and/or new genre.

The William H. Johnson Prize is awarded annually to an early-career African American artist. For their purposes, "early-career" is a flexible term that should be interpreted liberally to include artists who have finished their academic work within twelve years from the year that a prize is awarded. For example, a person who finished their studies in 2003 is eligible to apply in 2015, but not in 2016. Age is not determinative, and artists who have not earned BFAs or MFAs are still eligible so long as they have not been working as a professional artist for more than twelve years.

The 2015 William H. Johnson Prize is $25,000 and the winner will be announced in December 2015.

Application Deadline: September 18, 2015

Limited Submission Reminder: W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program

Key Deadlines: June 15, 2015 (CWRU internal LOI), November 1, 2015 (Sponsor Deadline).

The W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program seeks to benefit humanity by funding fundamental, high-risk research in two specific areas: 1) medical research and 2) science and engineering. Both Senior and Early Career investigators are encouraged to apply. CWRU may submit two proposals per funding cycle: one (1) in Medical Research and one (1) in Science and Engineering Research.

Applicants are encouraged to consult with their Associate Deans for Research prior to internal submission to assure they meet eligibility criteria and their projects meet stated program objectives.

Grants of up to $1 million over 3 years are awarded for projects in science and engineering research and medical research that:

  • Focus on basic, early stage, emerging areas of research, not on clinical or translational research, treatment trials or research for the sole purpose of drug development.
  • Have the potential to develop breakthrough technologies, instrumentation or methodologies.
  • Have few, if any, peer groups pursuing comparable or related work.
  • Have high level of risk due to unconventional approaches, or by challenging the prevailing paradigm.
  • Have the potential for transformative impact, such as the founding of a new field of research, the enabling of observations not previously possible, or the altered perception of a previously intractable problem.
  • Fall outside the mission of public funding agencies. Provide specifics. If you've been declined federal funding, provide the documentation stating why, if available.
  • Demonstrate that the W. M. Keck Foundation's support is essential to the project's success.
