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.

2014 COI Disclosure Status Reflected in Sparta System

The deadline for submission of CWRU 2014 Outside Interests Disclosure forms was April 1, 2015. The Sparta System reflects those who have submitted their 2014 disclosure to the Conflict of Interests (COI) Office.

Please be aware, however, that if individuals listed as key personnel on proposals in Sparta have not completed the 2014 Outside Interests Disclosure process, those individuals will need to do so before proposals can continue in the approval workflow. It is important to allow enough time to address any instances of overdue disclosures when submitting a proposal.

For assistance with the disclosure process or any questions, contact the staff of the Conflict of Interests Office at 216-368-0838 or 216-368-5963 (rxc39@case.edu).

National Institutes of Health – Lasker Clinical Research Scholars

The National Institutes of Health, the nation's premier agency for biomedical and behavioral research, in partnership with the Lasker Foundation, is pleased to announce the Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program, an historic "intramural-extramural" partnership to nurture the next generation of clinical researchers. The program supports a small number of exceptional clinical researchers in the early stages of their careers to promote their development to fully independent positions. Successful candidates are designated as Lasker Clinical Research Scholars.

Lasker Scholars receive a unique combination of NIH funding for clinical research for to 10 years. In the first phase of the program, Scholars will receive appointments for 5-7 years as tenure-track investigators within the NIH Intramural Research Program with independent budgets. In the second phase, successful Scholars will receive up to 3 years of NIH support for their research at an extramural research facility; or the Scholar can be considered to remain as an investigator within the intramural program.

Lasker Scholars will have access to the NIH Clinical Center, the nation's largest hospital devoted entirely to clinical research. Through an arrangement with the Lasker Foundation, Scholars will have the opportunity to participate in selected activities, including attendance at the Lasker Breakfast and Award Luncheon, and participation in annual scientific meetings.

Application Deadline: August 27, 2015

Department of Health and Human Services – Food & Drug Administration

The goal of this program is to support the advancement of regulatory science that can facilitate the implementation and the assessment of emerging manufacturing technology in the pharmaceutical sector. Emerging manufacturing technology can be viewed as a technology that has the potential to modernize the pharmaceutical manufacturing body of knowledge to support more robust, predictable, and/or cost-effective processes and with which the FDA has limited review or inspection experiences, due to its relative novelty. Examples of such elements include innovative or novel (1) product manufacturing technology, such as the dosage form; (2) manufacturing process (e.g., design, scale-up, and/or commercial scale); and/or (3) testing technology.

Application Deadline: June 30 , 2015
