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.

American Psychological Foundation - Innovative Anxiety Disorders Research
The American Psychological Foundation is accepting applications for its annual David H. and Beverly A. Barlow Grant program.

A single grant of up to $8,000 grant will be awarded to support novel basic and clinical research on anxiety and anxiety related disorders conducted by graduate students and early career researchers.

To be eligible, applicants must be a graduate student or early-career researcher (no more than ten years postdoctoral); be affiliated with a nonprofit charitable, educational, or scientific institution, or a governmental entity operating exclusively for charitable and educational purposes; have a demonstrated knowledge of anxiety and anxiety research, either basic or clinical; and have demonstrated competence and the capacity to execute the proposed work.

Application Deadline: September 15, 2017

For more information visit the APF webpage.

 
Whitehall Foundation - Bioscience Research Projects
The Whitehall Foundation assists scholarly research in the life sciences through its research grants and grants-in-aid programs. It is the foundation's policy to support those dynamic areas of basic biological research that are not heavily supported by federal agencies or other foundations with specialized missions. The foundation emphasizes the support of young scientists at the beginning of their careers and productive senior scientists who wish to move into new fields of interest.

1) Research: Research grants of up to $225,000 over three years will be awarded to established scientists of all ages working at an accredited institution in the United States. Grants will not be awarded to investigators who have already received, or expect to receive, substantial support from other sources, even if it is for an unrelated purpose.
2) Grants-in-Aid: One-year grants of up to $30,000 will be awarded to researchers at the assistant professor level who experience difficulty in competing for research funds because they have not yet become firmly established. Grants-in-Aid can also be made to senior scientists.

To be eligible, applicants must hold the position of assistant professor or higher; have Principal Investigator status; and be considered an "independent investigator" with his/her own dedicated lab space or have lab space independent of another investigator.

LOI Deadline: April 15, 2017
Invited Applications Deadline: September 01, 2017

National Endowment for the Arts
The National Endowment for the Arts has published guidelines and the application for the next funding round of Our Town, the agency's primary creative placemaking grants program.

The Our Town grant program supports creative placemaking projects that help to transform communities into lively, beautiful, and resilient places with the arts at their core. This funding supports local efforts to enhance quality of life and opportunity for existing residents, increase creative activity, and create a distinct sense of place.

Subject to the availability of funding, the endowment will provide a limited number of grants for creative placemaking. Our Town requires partnerships between arts organizations and government, other nonprofit organizations, and private entities to achieve livability goals for communities. The program offers support for projects in two areas:

1) Arts Engagement, Cultural Planning, and Design Projects: Projects in this category should represent the distinct character and quality of their communities. They also must involve a partnership between a nonprofit organization and a local government entity, with one of the partners being a cultural organization. Matching grants will range from $25,000 to $200,000.
2) Projects that Build Knowledge (about creative placemaking): Grants in this category are available to arts and design service organizations and industry or university organizations that provide technical assistance to those doing place-based work. Matching grants will range from $25,000 to $100,000.

Proposal Deadline: September 11, 2017

National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will evaluate an updated literature review and analysis of potential long-term health effects on Army test subjects. The review includes studies on over 100 test agents, including biological and chemical agents, drugs, and medications. The committee will determine whether the report appropriately identifies potential long-term health effects from exposure during testing and uses an adequate weight-of-evidence approach to characterize the strength of association between agents and their potential effects.

To View the Statement of Task and nominate an individual to serve on the study committee, view the NASEM website.

Nomination Deadline: July 7, 2017
