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.

Annual Outside Interests Disclosure Cycle for Faculty and Non-Faculty Researchers Begins Today

On Wednesday, February 1, 2017, the Office of Research Administration emailed Outside Interest Disclosure Certifications to all faculty and non-faculty researchers who are required to disclose to the University. Disclosures are made via our electronic disclosure system, SpartaCOI.

CWRU policy requires that all faculty and any other researchers who contribute to the scientific development or execution of a research project in a substantive way disclose their outside interests at least annually. Please note that the form captures data from the previous calendar year (2016 calendar year), and all key personnel are required to have a disclosure on file before a research proposal can be submitted.

Information about CWRU's Conflict of Interests Policy, a SpartaCOI Reference Guide, and more can be found at the Conflict of Interests Committee website at: https://case.edu/research/faculty-staff/compliance/coi/.

For additional assistance, please contact the Conflict of Interests Committee staff at (216) 368-5963 or caseoic@case.edu.

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation - Health Policy and Law Research
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has issued a Call for Proposals for research projects that can help build an evidence base for policies that lead to a Culture of Health.

Through its Policies for Action: Policy and Law Research to Build a Culture of Health program, the foundation seeks to engage longstanding health and healthcare researchers, as well as experts in fields such as housing, education, transportation, and the built environment who have not worked in health before. The goal is to develop research that generates actionable evidence — data and information — that can guide legislators and other policy makers, public agencies, educators, advocates, community groups, and individuals in shaping health policy.

The research may examine established laws, regulations, and policies, as well as potential new policies and approaches, and should inform significant gaps in knowledge with respect to which policies can serve as levers to improve population health and well-being and achieve greater levels of health equity.

Preference will be given to innovative research that evaluates and addresses actionable policies focused on early childhood, or that have lifelong, even multigenerational benefits; are preventive rather than remedial; advance a community's own priorities; highlight collaboration between the public and private sectors, or innovations within the private sector; address people or places or systems that have been traditionally underserved or unattended; foster stability and continuity at the neighborhood, community, state, and/or federal levels; transform or bridge major service systems, such as between healthcare and public health systems, or other systems that influence health in communities, such as social services or education; and/or influence values and beliefs integral to a Culture of Health.

Applicants must be a public entity or nonprofit organizations that is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and be based in the United States. Applications are welcome from interdisciplinary or cross-sectoral research teams; investigators from a variety of areas and disciplines, including but not limited to architecture, business, community planning, data scientists, economics, epidemiology, health policy, medicine, public health, social work, sociology; and urban planning and system engineers.

The program will award grants of up to $250,000 for up to two years.

Letter of Intent Deadline: March 10, 2017
Invited Proposal Deadline: June 16, 2017

NIH: New Informatics Tools and Methods to Enhance US Cancer Surveillance and Research
The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to advance surveillance science by supporting the development of new and innovative tools and methods for more efficient, detailed, timely, and accurate data collection by cancer registries. Specifically, the FOA seeks applications for projects to develop, adapt, apply, scale-up, and validate tools and methods to improve the collection and integration cancer registry data and to expand the data items collected. Applications must be built on partnership with U.S. population-based central cancer registries (a partnership must involve at least two different registries). Tools and methods proposed for development are expected to enhance the registry core infrastructure and, in so doing, expand the usefulness of registry-collected data to support high-quality cancer research.

Letter of Intent Deadline: March 16, 2019
