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

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).

The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts – 2015 William H. Johnson Prize

The William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that seeks to encourage African American artists early in their careers by offering financial grants. The Johnson Foundation awards grants to individuals who work in the following media: painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation and/or new genre.

The William H. Johnson Prize is awarded annually to an early-career African American artist. For their purposes, "early-career" is a flexible term that should be interpreted liberally to include artists who have finished their academic work within twelve years from the year that a prize is awarded. For example, a person who finished their studies in 2003 is eligible to apply in 2015, but not in 2016. Age is not determinative, and artists who have not earned BFAs or MFAs are still eligible so long as they have not been working as a professional artist for more than twelve years.

The 2015 William H. Johnson Prize is $25,000 and the winner will be announced in December 2015.

Application Deadline: September 18, 2015

For more information visit the William H. Johnson Foundation for the Arts webpage.
