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.

NIH: Noise-Induced Synaptopathy in the Human Auditory System (R01)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks applications focused on determining if noise-induced cochlear synaptopathy occurs in humans. Studies may include, but are not limited to, diagnosis/detection and determination of functional consequences of such noise-induced damage. Animal studies could be responsive to this FOA, but the direct applicability to humans must be clearly delineated. Multi-disciplinary teams are encouraged to apply.

Letter of Intent Deadline: December 24, 2016
Application Deadline: January 24, 2017

CDC: Development and Evaluation of Sports
Concussion Prevention Strategies The purpose of this research is to either (a) develop and pilot test a new intervention OR (b) rigorously evaluate an existing intervention that targets young athletes participating in sports programs. Interventions should be social and behavioral in nature and can represent either primary prevention or secondary prevention of sports-related concussion. Primary prevention interventions aim to prevent sports-related concussions before they occur, while secondary prevention interventions aim to reduce the impact of concussions that have already occurred. Information gleaned from this research can inform mechanisms for change in the culture of youth sports and support multi-stakeholder approaches to promoting a positive (preventive) culture of sport to mitigate negative norms, beliefs, mores, and policies that may increase risks of concussion among young athletes.

Application Deadline: February 3, 2017

For more information visit the Grants.Gov webpage.

Kress Foundation
The Samuel H. Kress Foundation is accepting applications from nonprofit organizations for its History of Art grant program from scholarly projects that can enhance the appreciation and understanding of European art and architecture.

Grants are awarded to support projects that create and disseminate specialized knowledge, including archival projects, development and dissemination of scholarly databases, documentation projects, museum exhibitions and publications, photographic campaigns, scholarly catalogs and publications, and technical and scientific studies. The program also supports activities that permit art historians to share their expertise through international exchanges, professional meetings, conferences, symposia, consultations, the presentation of research, and other professional events.

Application Deadline: January 15, 2017

For more information visit the Kress Foundation website.

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), National Institutes of Health (NIH) – Learning Disabilities Research Centers (LDRCs)
This funding opportunity is supported by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) for the Learning Disabilities Research Centers Program (LDRCs). LDRCs will focus on generating new scientific knowledge to inform our understanding of learning disabilities (LDs) and comorbid conditions through synergistic, integrated, team-based transdisciplinary science. Applicants should focus on either foundational or translational, transdisciplinary research addressing the definition, classification, etiology, diagnosis, epidemiology, early identification and prevention-based approaches. They also should focus on remediation of children, adolescents, or adults identified with or at risk for LDs in component oral language abilities, reading, written expression abilities, mathematics and relationships among these LDs and other disabilities as well as co-occurring or comorbid conditions. Eligible applicants include city, town and county governments, public housing authorities, as well as public and private institutions of higher education.
