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

FOIA Requests

CWRU researchers who receive requests for information that invoke the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) should contact the Office of General Counsel. This should be done immediately so the extremely short deadlines under FOIA can be met. General Counsel can work with the faculty member to take steps to protect proprietary or confidential information from grants and protocols prior to the release of the requested information. Individual researchers should not release information without first consulting with the CWRU Office of General Counsel.

For more information, contact the Office of General Counsel at: http://www.case.edu/president/counsel/contactus.html.

PCORI: Patient-Powered Research Networks (PPRN) Research Demonstration Projects

Patient-powered research networks (PPRNs) were funded by PCORI with the intent of supporting communities or networks of patients motivated to participate in clinical research through the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network (PCORnet) and to develop their capacity to govern the research activities of their networks. There are three objectives: (1) Relevance: Answer important patient-identified research questions generated by the PPRN community that remain unanswered due to insufficient or inconclusive evidence. (2) Collaboration: Use, develop, and contribute to PCORnet’s shared tools and resources (the PCORnet Commons) to accelerate the conduct of research using PCORnet through collaborations with other PPRNs. (3) Evaluation: Evaluate the contribution and impact of the project to and on the development of the PCORnet Commons and on PCORnet’s capacity to support an increasing volume of future research.

Letter of Intent Deadline: July 31, 2015

The application deadline is September 30, 2015
