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

Ohio Development Services Agency, Ohio Third Frontier

The Ohio Development Services has announced the latest RFP for the Ohio Third Frontier’s Technology Validation and Start-up Fund (TVSF) program. The goal is to create greater economic growth in Ohio based on start-up companies that commercialize technologies developed by Ohio institutions of higher education and other Ohio not-for-profit research institutions. The Technology Validation and Start-Up Fund has been designed to support protected technologies developed at Ohio research institutions that need known validation/proof that will directly impact and enhance both their commercial viability and ability to support a start-up company, and support Ohio start-up and Ohio young companies that license these validated/proven technologies from these Ohio research institutions.

Key dates for CY2015 Cycle 1 include:
Written Questions through April 2, 2015
Technology Transfer Office Qualification Document due by 2:00 P.M., April 2, 2015
Proposals due by 2:00 P.M., April 9, 2015

Limited Submission Reminder: American Diabetes Association Pathway to Stop Diabetes

Key Deadlines: March 2, 2015, 5:00pm (CWRU Internal Submission Deadline), July 1, 2015, 8:00pm EST.

To accelerate the research needed to discover solutions and ultimately cure this deadly epidemic, the American Diabetes Association has launched a bold initiative, Pathway to Stop Diabetes, to inspire a new generation of diabetes researchers. Pathway will provide crucial support to individuals focusing on innovative ideas and transformational approaches that will lead to ground-breaking discoveries in diabetes prevention, treatment and cures.

Pathway will support creative scientists early in their diabetes research careers, or investigators who are established in other disciplines but would like to expand their focus to diabetes research. Through awards of $1.625 million over the course of up to seven years, the program will provide researchers the freedom, autonomy, time and focus needed to explore new ideas.

For more information on this limited submission opportunity, visit the Office of Research Administration website.
