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

Social Network Analysis & Health Mini Series

The Social Network Analysis and Health Mini-Series is a forum to enhance understanding of social network theory and methods and their application within the field of health research. Social network analysis is increasingly used by scientists across the prevention-to-treatment continuum to understand relational dynamics of complex health issues. The goals of the mini-series are to introduce this method through case examples that include applications related to a range of chronic and infectious diseases among adult and youth populations.

Social Networks and Health Lecture
Wednesday, May 6, 2015
12:30-2:00pm
Biomedical Research Building, Room 105
Free and open to the public, no registration required

The public lecture will orient faculty, fellows, students, clinicians, and the broader Cleveland community to applications of social network theory and methods.

Hands-On Introduction to Social Network Analysis and its Applications

Kelvin Smith Library, Room LL06

The full day workshop requires a $50 registration fee. Spaces are limited to 30 registrants for the workshop. A small number of workshop scholarships are available to support graduate students and non-faculty trainees/postdoctoral fellows. A letter from the student/trainee’s mentor is required to obtain the scholarship. The full day workshop is intended for researchers interested in applying social network analysis in their programs of research. Prior experience with the method is not required for participation. The workshop will provide a broader overview of social network analysis and an opportunity for participants to explore analytic software including UCINET, NETDRAW, Exponential Random Graph Models, and SIENA. Trial versions of the software will be available to participants for use during the workshop.

National Multiple Sclerosis Society

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is now accepting pre-applications for the Career Transition Fellowship. This opportunity targets current postdoctoral trainees who demonstrate both commitment and exceptional potential to conduct MS-related research. The award provides approximately $550,000 over five years to support a two-year period of advanced postdoctoral training in MS research and the first three years of research support in a new faculty appointment.

Deadline: Preliminary application due April 15, 2015, Full application due August 12, 2015

For more information visit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society website.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is looking to fund high-risk pilot grants to quickly test novel ideas. Funding is provided for one year to test innovative, cutting-edge ideas or untested methods, and to gather sufficient preliminary data to apply for longer-term funding. Applications for studies related to multiple sclerosis that may serve to advance the mission of stopping MS progression, restoring function and improving quality of life, and preventing MS are welcomed. The Society supports fundamental as well as applied studies, non-clinical or clinical in nature, including projects in patient management, care and rehabilitation.

Deadline: New applications reviewed on a quarterly basis, with 2015 deadlines of January 7, April 1, July 1, October 7.

Doris Duke Charitable Foundation – Building Demand for the Arts

The Doris Duke Building Demand for the Arts grants support organizations and artists in joint efforts to develop audience demand for jazz, theatre and/or contemporary dance. While many programs focus on the supply side of the supply/demand equation, this program is predicated on the belief that artists and organizations can work together in imaginative ways to create and pilot methods of reaching the public and developing interest in and access to the performing arts. This program encourages creative thinking about how to increase this demand and to engage communities in new ways—which may include but are not necessarily limited to the traditional artist-audience dynamic.

The program is divided into two distinct grant initiatives: Exploration Grants, supporting hosted visits for artists of at least 30 days over a period of up to 15 months during which artists and organizations are to begin to imagine and plan ways to build demand; and Implementation Grants, supporting artists hosted by organizations for at least 90 days over a period of up to three years. Both Exploration and Implementation grants will be offered in 2015 but organizations may only apply for one of the grant types. A total of 40 Implementation grants will be awarded in the next two rounds.

Sponsor Deadline for Intent to Apply Form: April 24, 2015

To view the official announcement and description of this opportunity visit the Doris Duke website.
