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.

Puffin Foundation
The Puffin Foundation West seeks to open the doors of artistic expression by providing grants to artist activists and arts organizations that are often excluded from mainstream opportunities due to race, gender, or social philosophy.

To that end, the foundation is accepting applications from arts organizations and projects in Ohio that seek to enrich and inform the public on important topics such as the environment, social justice, civil rights, and other contemporary issues facing the country (and the planet) that other funders might hesitate to fund. The foundation will give special consideration to communities and school districts that are underserved by the arts.

The foundation will consider projects from individual artists and organizations working within the visual arts, dance, music, theater, photography, film/video, writing, poetry, and public interest platforms. In 2018, and in honor of the foundation receiving the Ohio Governor's Arts Patron Award, all grants will awarded to residents of and/or nonprofit organizations based in Ohio.

Average grant amount will range between $550 and $2,500.

Individuals as well as nonprofit educational, cultural, and social justice organizations in Ohio are eligible to apply.

Applications Deadline: December 9, 2017

American Tinnitus Association
For more than forty years, the American Tinnitus Association has helped patients understand and manage the "ringing in their ears" and raised resources for advanced tinnitus research. Since 1971, ATA has contributed nearly $6 million to medical research projects focused on curing tinnitus.

In 2017, ATA will award a grant of up to $50,000 for innovative and high-quality research that substantively contributes to the scientific understanding of tinnitus and advances the search for a cure. The program focuses on providing seed grants for the most innovative areas of tinnitus scientific exploration. Proposals are measured against ATA's "Roadmap for a Cure," a framework for how tinnitus research can best — and most rapidly — be used to achieve a definitive cure for tinnitus.

Scientists, academics, and healthcare professionals affiliated with a nonprofit medical and research institution are eligible to apply.

Submission Deadline: December 15, 2017

Oncology Nursing Society Foundation
The Oncology Nursing Society Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Oncology Nursing Society, is a national, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to providing education to opportunities for oncology nurses around the world.

To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for its annual Pat McCue/New Orleans Chapter End-of-Life Care Nursing Career Development Award. Through the program, a single grant of $2,000 will be awarded to support continuing educational activities for a registered nurse dedicated to caring for patients and their families during the final stages of life. (Note: The award cannot be used for tuition in an academic program.)

To be eligible, all applicants must be a registered nurse who spends a minimum of 75 percent of his/her time involved in end-of-life care and who has at least a year of experience in end-of-life care.

Application Deadline: June 15, 2018

DHHS – NIH - BRAIN Initiative: Tools to Facilitate High-Throughput Micro-connectivity Analysis (R01)
The purpose of this Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative is to encourage applications that will develop and validate tools and resources to facilitate the detailed analysis of brain micro-connectivity. Novel and augmented techniques are sought that will ultimately be broadly accessible to the neuroscience community for the interrogation of micro-connectivity in healthy and diseased brains of model organisms and humans. Development of technologies that will significantly drive down the cost of connectomics would enable routine mapping of the micro-connectivity on the same individuals that have been analyzed physiologically, or to compare normal and pathological tissues in substantial numbers of multiple individuals to assess variability. Advancements in both electron microscopy (EM) and super resolution light microscopic approaches are sought. Applications that propose to develop approaches that break through existing technical barriers to substantially improve current capabilities are highly encouraged. Proof-of-principle demonstrations and/or reference datasets enabling future development are welcome, as are improved approaches for automated segmentation and analysis strategies of neuronal structures in EM images.

LOI Deadline: 30 days prior to application
Application Deadline: December 07, 2017

HHS: Central Neural Mechanisms of Age-Related Hearing Loss (R01)
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage basic or clinical research applications that investigate central neural mechanisms of age-related hearing loss in older adults and/or in relevant animal models. This FOA is driven by the need to address a major gap in our understanding of the central pathways and neural networks that are involved in hearing loss and how these may be altered in the context of the aging brain, as well as how natural aging influences central auditory plasticity.

Application Deadline: November 8, 2017
