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

National Institutes of Health – National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)

The NIH National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) has released a RFA for the Maximizing Investigators' Research Award (MIRA) , a pilot program that will award a single grant to provide support for all of the research in an investigator's laboratory that is related to the mission of NIGMS. Within the scope of the MIRA grant, investigators will have the freedom to explore new avenues of inquiry that arise during the course of their research. MIRA grants will generally be for 5 years for both established investigators and new and early stage investigators.

Letter of Intent Deadline: August 9, 2015

Application Deadline: September 9, 2015

For more information visit the NIH webpage.

 

American Academy of Dermatology

The American Academy of Dermatology offers grants to individuals and organizations to fund international volunteer and humanitarian projects through its SkinCare for Developing Countries program. Through the program, grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded in support of projects related to dermatology and/global health care that help individuals in underserved regions of the world. Projects must be sustainable, community-based, and rely on additional sources of funding.

Academy members and non-members are eligible to apply.

Application Deadline: August 1, 2015.

For more information visit the AAD webpage.

 
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.

NIH Center for Accelerated Innovations at Cleveland Clinic

The NIH Center for Accelerated Innovation at Cleveland Clinic (NCAI-CC) Announces the Request for Applications (RFA) for the third funding cycle for Cleveland Clinic, Case Western Reserve University, The Ohio State University, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, and University of Cincinnati.

Funding is available for promising emerging technologies directed towards diagnosis, treatment or management of cardiovascular, pulmonary, blood or sleep-related disorders. We are seeking projects such as therapeutics (e.g. drugs, biologics), preventatives, diagnostics, devices, tools, etc., in order to facilitate their translation to commercialized products that improve patient care and enhance health.

The NCAI-CC will provide funding and project assistance to advance the development of high priority early-stage technologies within the mission areas of the NHLBI (cardiovascular, lung, blood and sleep disorders).

Expert assistance will be provided in areas required for early technology development, including commercial opportunity assessment, intellectual property, clinical and regulatory, reimbursement, business, legal and project management.

Letter of Intent Deadline: August 19, 2015

For more information visit the NCAI-CC webpage.
