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.

Take Advantage of All Pivot Has to Offer

For years, Community of Science (COS) has been recognized around the world for its funding from a wide variety of sources as well as its access to the world’s research community.

CWRU has subscribed to COS's new product, Pivot, which provides you the edge by bringing together the right research opportunities, funding, and people—quickly and easily. It provides global and local connections that strengthen research by exploring new avenues for funding and collaboration—for faculty, staff researchers, and graduate students.

Pivot can:

  • provide access to the most comprehensive global source of funding opportunities;
  • identify research expertise from within or outside of CWRU;
  • foster collaboration by cultivating essential partnerships and alliances; and
  • build strong network connections for future opportunities.

NIH: Improvement of Animal Models for Stem Cell-Based Regenerative Medicine (R21)
This FOA encourages Exploratory/Developmental Research grant (R21) applications from institutions and organizations proposing research aimed at characterizing animal stem cells and improving existing, and creating new, animal models for human disease conditions. The intent of this initiative is to facilitate the use of stem cell-based therapies for regenerative medicine. The initiative focuses on the following areas: 1) comparative analysis of animal and human stem cells to provide information for selection of the most predictive and informative model systems; 2) development of new technologies for stem cell characterization and transplantation; and 3) improvement of animal disease models for stem cell-based therapeutic applications.

Application Deadline: May 7, 2019

Enhanced Secure Environment for REDCap at CWRU

At the request of CWRU Researchers, UTech is providing an enhanced secure environment for REDCap at CWRU.

CWRU-based REDCap users and existing CWRU REDCap projects will be relocated to the Secure Research Environment (SRE) beginning late January 2018. Existing user access/experience will not change--you will use your current URL (https://redcap.case.edu/redcap/). There will be a brief scheduled interruption in the service during the changeover (during non-business hours).

Future communications will address this move’s impact on your projects that may contain Protected Health Information (PHI) from HIPAA covered entities, Personally Identified Information (PII), or new users or projects migrating from partnering hospital systems (with PHI or PII present). In these cases, enhanced security options will be available and UTech/REDCap staff will be available to assist you.

At this time, there will be no change in access or service. If you have questions, please contact the [U]Tech Service Desk at help@case.edu or (216)368-HELP. Refer to the REDCap change. (If you are not using the CWRU REDCap, this relocation will not apply to you, unless you seek to move your REDCap data from its current location to the CWRU instance).
