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.

Division of Infectious Diseases & HIV Medicine at Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, with funds from STERIS Corporation
The Division of Infectious Diseases & HIV Medicine at Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, with funds from STERIS Corporation, will provide seed money to faculty to foster research in emerging and healthcare-associated infections. Investigators in the basic science and clinical departments in the School of Medicine and Hospital System as well as in other departments throughout the University are eligible. Grants, not to exceed $30,000 direct costs each, will be awarded to investigators who intend to gather preliminary data to be used in seeking future independently funded awards. Basic science applications are encouraged but should have a clear translational component related to the themes of this request for application. Up to three grants annually will be awarded. At least one of these awards will be targeted directly to STERIS’ interests. The University Hospitals Research Institute will serve as the fiscal entity through which the monies will be distributed and awards administered.

Application Deadline: December 20, 2016

DOD: Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences Broad Agency Announcement for Basic Scientific Research (2017)
This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the Foundational Science Research Unit (FSRU) of the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) solicits new proposals for its fiscal year 2017 program of basic research in behavioral science. The U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences is the Army’s lead agency for the conduct of research, development, and analyses for the improvement of Army readiness and performance via research advances and applications of the behavioral and social sciences that address personnel, organization, training, and leader development issues. The basic research program supports research projects that are designed to expand fundamental knowledge and discover general principles in the behavioral and social sciences. In addition to looking for proposals that provide for programmatic efforts to develop and evaluate psychological and behavioral theory, we strongly encourage Applicants to propose novel, state-of-the-art, and multidisciplinary approaches that address difficult problems. A key consideration in the decision to support a research proposal is that its findings are likely to stimulate new, basic behavioral research, which in turn, will lead to improved performance of Army personnel and their units. Proposals may address both traditional behavioral issues as well as psychophysiological (to include neuroscience) and network science approaches to social phenomena, memory, cognition, and personality. Collaboration is encouraged among institutions of higher education (IHE’s), non-profit organizations, commercial organizations, and the other U.S. Military Services. Funding of basic research proposals within ARI areas of interest will be determined by funding constraints and priorities set during each budget cycle. A proposal should describe its contribution to theory and how its results might lead to basic behavioral research that would be meaningful to the Army.

Application Deadline: June 30, 2017

A single grant of up to $5,000 will be awarded in 2017.

To be eligible, applicants must be a student and/or faculty member at an accredited university in the United States and demonstrate research competence and a commitment to the study of injury prevention in children.

Application Deadline: October 1, 2017

DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program
The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories. The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories.

Application Deadline: May 16, 2017

For more information visit the DOE website.

 
South Arts
