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

Clinical & Translational Science Collaborative – Career Development Training Opportunity

The Clinical & Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC) KL2 a post-doctoral training program with an emphasis on multidisciplinary clinical and translational research, offers an innovative career development opportunity for qualified candidates. The CTSC KL2 is designed to train the nation’s future leaders in clinical and translational research, and is part of the NIH Roadmap aimed at “re-engineering the clinical research enterprise.” The CTSC KL2 has just welcomed this year’s cohort of scholars, who were selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants:

  • Mohamed Abazeed, MD, PhD (Radiation Oncology; Translational Hematology & Oncology, CCF)
  • Stefanie Avril, MD (Pathology, CWRU)
  • Nicholas Schiltz, PhD (Epidemiology & Biostatistics, CWRU)
  • Jennifer Sweet, MD (Neurosurgery, University Hospitals Case Medical Center)

CTSC KL2 is now seeking applications for next year’s cohort.
Qualified candidates must:
  • Hold an MD, PhD, DDS, PharmD, PsyD, or equivalent degree
  • Demonstrate a keen interest in clinical research
  • Have an appointment in one of the CTSC partner institutions on or before July 1, 2016
  • Be a U.S. citizen or have permanent resident status

Each scholar will embark on a 4-year program of intensive training in multidisciplinary team-based, patient-oriented clinical research, combining an innovative curriculum with mentored research experiences.

Applications will be accepted between 7/1/15 and 10/12/15.

For more information, contact Beth Spyke, MPA, at spykeb@ccf.org / 216.444.2702 or Raed Dweik, MD, at dweikr@ccf.org / 216-445-5763. You may also request to schedule an information session.

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.

Remember to Travel Clean when Going Abroad this Summer

Many faculty, staff, and students will be traveling abroad over the summer. When it comes to traveling internationally with research data or materials, the CWRU community is urged to “travel clean”. That is, leave behind in the U.S. any research data, items, or technology which may be subject to laws requiring an export license or which may be vulnerable to loss, theft, or other privacy-related considerations. Take only those data that have been published or are in the public domain. Particularly consider whether there is research data on your laptop and other electronic devices before taking them overseas.

If you are unsure about any data or materials you plan to bring as you travel abroad, call Lisa Palazzo, Director of Export Control and Privacy Management, 368-5791, or Boyd Kumher, University Chief Compliance, Export Control & Privacy Officer, 368-0833, or email exportcontrol@case.edu.
