Located in the heart of Cleveland’s University Circle, CWRU is a place where faculty and students come together to advance knowledge and make discoveries that change lives. We not only rank among the nation’s top universities in terms of research expenditures but also in invention disclosures and licensing agreements. We nurture groundbreaking work and collaborate with industry and other organizations to bring our discoveries and inventions to society.

Extraordinary research requires an outstanding infrastructure. Our Office of Research and Technology Management provides support to seek out grant funding, manage research projects responsibly, and to transfer university technologies to the marketplace. Case Western Reserve is a place for people driven to make a difference, and our office exists to help them succeed.

The Office of Research and Technology Management is led by Dr. J. Micheal Oakes, Senior Vice President for Research.
