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.

Updated UHCMC IRB Consent Form Template

Recent changes in the research infrastructure at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, have prompted the UHCMC IRB to revise the Informed Consent Form template to reflect the name change to UH Clinical Research Center in addition to the UH research leadership role change to the Associate Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Grace McComsey. The new language is required for all new studies submitted to the UHCMC IRB after February 1, 2017.

The UHCMC IRB will NOT require submission of a modification to update already approved consent forms. The decision to update previously approved consent forms should be assessed by the individual Principal Investigators and their associated research teams (the IRB highly recommends incorporating the updated text with another planned revision to the consent form and not to submit a specific revision to add this text only).

The new template can be found here: http://www.uhhospitals.org/clinical-research/institutional-review-board/forms-and-templates
