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.

National Science Foundation - Joint DMS/NIGMS Initiative to Support Research at the Interface of the Biological and Mathematical Sciences (DMS/NIGMS)
The Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) in the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) plan to support research in mathematics and statistics on questions in the biological and biomedical sciences. Both agencies recognize the need for promoting research at the interface between the mathematical sciences and the life sciences. This program is designed to encourage new collaborations, as well as to support existing ones.

Proposal Deadline: September 18, 2017

Russell Sage Foundation
The Russell Sage Foundation is accepting applications for its Social, Economic and Political Effects of the Affordable Care Act program.

The program supports innovative social science research on the social, economic, and political effects of the Affordable Care Act. The foundation is especially interested in funding analyses that address important questions about the effects of the reform on outcomes such as financial security and family economic well-being, labor supply and demand, participation in other public programs, family and children's outcomes, and differential effects by age, race, ethnicity, nativity, or disability status. The foundation also is interested in research that examines the political effects of the implementation of the new law, including changes in views about government, support for future government policy changes, or the impact on policy development outside of health care.

Funding is available for secondary analysis of data or for original data collection. Projects that propose novel uses of existing data and projects that propose to analyze newly available or underutilized data are welcome. The foundation will not fund research on the effects of the ACA on healthcare delivery or health outcomes (e.g., barriers to implementation, changes in the quality of care and health status, or trends in enrollment and affordability), as other funders already do that.

LOI Deadline: August 21, 2017

For more information , program specific RFA’s and instructions on how to submit an application, visit the Russell Sage Foundation webpage.

 
NIH: Reducing the Duration of Untreated Psychosis in the United States (R34) & (R01)
Approximately 100,000 adolescents and young adults in the United States experience a first episode of psychosis (FEP) every year. The early phase of psychotic illness is widely viewed as a critical opportunity for indicated prevention, and a chance to alter the downward trajectory and poor outcomes associated with schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders. Compared to traditional treatment approaches, programs that integrate pharmacologic, psychological, and rehabilitation interventions for FEP, i.e., team-based Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC), have been found to produce a range of positive clinical and functional outcomes. However, the timing of treatment is critical; short and long-term outcomes are better when individuals begin treatment close to the onset of psychosis. Unfortunately, numerous studies find a substantial delay between the onset of psychotic symptoms and the initiation of FEP care; in the U.S. treatment is typically delayed between one and three years. Early identification of FEP, rapid referral to evidence-based services, and effective engagement in CSC are essential to shortening the duration of untreated psychosis (DUP) and pre-empting the functional deterioration common in psychotic disorders. The World Health Organization advocates reducing DUP to 3 months or less. Accordingly, this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks planning grant applications that (1) identify a baseline rate of DUP in community settings that include CSC programs; (2) map referral pathways to CSC care, (3) identify bottlenecks and gaps in the pathway to CSC care, and (4) develop and pilot test feasible strategies for substantially reducing DUP among persons with FEP.

Application Deadline: March 19, 2019

American Psychological Association – Abe Fellowships
The American Psychological Association is inviting applications for its 2018 Abe Fellowship Program. The program seeks to foster the development of a new generation of researchers who are interested in policy-relevant topics of long-range importance and who are willing to become key members of a bilateral and global research network built around such topics. The program provides fellows with a minimum of three and a maximum of twelve months of full-time support over a twenty-four-month period.

The program is open to citizens of the United States and Japan as well as nationals of other countries who can demonstrate strong and serious long-term affiliations with research communities in Japan or the United States. Applicants must hold a PhD or the terminal degree in their field, or have attained an equivalent level of professional experience at the time of application. Applications from researchers in professions other than academia are encouraged with the expectation that the product of the fellowship will contribute to the wider body of knowledge on the topic specified.

Application Deadline: September 01, 2017
