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

Student Research - Responsibilities before Graduation

Before graduating students leave the university, it is important that the following research-related responsibilities are fulfilled:

  • Any student-initiated institutional review board (IRB) protocol is required either to be turned over to the responsible investigator or closed out with the IRB.Keep in mind that in order to close a protocol, data must be deidentified. If identifiable data will be retained, the protocol must remain open and the faculty investigator is responsible for keeping the data and maintaining the security measures of it, as outlined in the approved IRB protocol.

  • For student-related research that has been federally funded, faculty advisors and responsible/principal investigators must keep original data, and students may take copies, unless a formal written agreement is made that ensures immediate and complete access to the original data.

  • Upon terminating the IRB protocol, the student must provide copies of the completed informed consent documents and any data collection instruments to the responsible investigator.
For more information on custody of research data, please see Section C, 6: http://www.case.edu/president/facsen/frames/handbook/research_scholar.htm/.
