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.


CWRU's Core Facilities Site is Live

CWRU's Core Facilities Support Committee is working to promote all of the university's diverse core facilities and service centers in an attempt to improve their visibility and promote collaboration with researchers and industry partners.

The committee is pleased to announce that their website http://research.case.edu/corefacilities is now available and users can find information about the most common core facilities in one place. Intended to work alongside the already available webpage for CWRU's Centers and Institutes http://www.case.edu/centers , the site strives to promote the amazing facilities our university offers.

If you would like more information, have a comment or have a core facility that you feel we have missed, please feel free to email the committee at CWRUcores@case.edu.

Take Advantage of All Pivot Has to Offer

For years, Community of Science (COS) has been recognized around the world for its funding from a wide variety of sources as well as its access to the world’s research community.

CWRU has subscribed to COS's new product, Pivot, which provides you the edge by bringing together the right research opportunities, funding, and people—quickly and easily. It provides global and local connections that strengthen research by exploring new avenues for funding and collaboration—for faculty, staff researchers, and graduate students.

Pivot can:

  • provide access to the most comprehensive global source of funding opportunities;
  • identify research expertise from within or outside of CWRU;
  • foster collaboration by cultivating essential partnerships and alliances; and
  • build strong network connections for future opportunities.
Learn more about how to use all the features Pivot has to offer.

Procter & Gamble Company (P&G)

The Procter & Gamble Fund Higher Education Grant Program has been established to provide support for efforts of regionally accredited U.S. colleges and universities that will better prepare students for success in business. Grants will be provided for specific projects or programs, not for operating support. Examples of eligible projects include, but are not limited to:

  • Improving curriculum to be at the cutting edge in relevance and effectiveness;
  • Fostering and enabling leadership opportunities and learning;
  • Creating a learning environment that encourages and enhances innovation and creativity;
  • Strengthening diversity in thought, participation and ongoing interaction.


In fairness to all participating institutions, there is a limit of two applications per discipline (i.e., two applications from the School of Business, two applications from the School of Engineering, etc.). For example, the program will accept an application from a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and an application from a Professor of Chemical Engineering from the same College/University. If the program receives more than two applications from the same discipline, the program will ask the applicant's Dean to select the two that will be submitted for the competition.

Based on the scope of the project, grants ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 will be awarded. Awards are for one year only. The grant money must be used as described in the grant application and should not be use to cover overhead cost, stipends or fellowships. One college or university may apply for multiple grants supporting multiple programs but may not receive more than $50,000 in one year.

The application deadline is September 30, 2015

For more information visit the P&G webpage.

 
National Institutes of Health – Transformative Research Award Program

The Transformative Research Award, run under the NIH Common Fund, was established to support exceptionally innovative, high-risk, and/or unconventional research projects that have the potential to create or overturn fundamental paradigms or otherwise have unusually broad impact. Such projects, due to their inherent risk, may be more difficult to support using a standard NIH R01 grant, but due to their potential impact, may merit pursuing. Little or no preliminary data are expected, but projects must clearly demonstrate the potential to produce a major impact in a broad area of biomedical or behavioral research.

Letter of Intent Deadline: September 9, 2015

Application Deadline: October 9, 2015

For more information visit the NIH webpage.

  • 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.
