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

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).

 
New Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Rate for Use in Proposals

Negotiations with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) regarding the University’s F&A rates have concluded. DHHS has approved a (3) three year F&A rate of 58.5% for CWRU, which is a 1.5 percentage point change from our previous rate of 57%. This rate will be effective through June 2016.

The new F&A rate should be used when preparing proposal budgets for awards with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2013 or after.
