Case Western Reserve University was formed in 1967 with the merger of Case Institute of Technology (1880) and Western Reserve University (1826). Case Western Reserve University is a high-caliber private university located in the Cleveland, Ohio area. The current undergraduate and graduate schools have a total of less than 10,000 students. Noteworthy achievements include the medical school for patient care and research, the Biomedical Engineering Department, the Case School of Engineering, and is credited with developing the first artificial human chromosomes among its discoveries.
Researchers efficiently charge a lithium-ion battery with solar cell
Consumers aren't embracing electric cars and trucks, partly due to the dearth of charging stations required to keep them moving. Even the conservation-minded are hesitant to go electric in some states because, studies show, ...
Frogs exposed to road salt appear to benefit then suffer
Millions of tons of road salt are applied to streets and highways across the United States each winter to melt ice and snow and make travel safer, but the effects of salt on wildlife are poorly understood.
Researchers develop fast test for invasive carp
A Case Western Reserve University graduate student turned a research paper into a field test that quickly determines whether an Asian carp invading Lake Erie is sterile or can reproduce.
Key protein controls nutrient availability in mammals
Case Western Reserve researchers already demonstrated that a single protein plays a pivotal role in the use of nutrients by major organs that allow for the burning of fat during exercise or regulating the heart's contractile ...
Astronomers find new details in first known spiral galaxy
Case Western Reserve University astronomers peered deep into space to discover new features of a galaxy that's been sketched and photographed for 170 years.
Shape-shifting frog discovered in Ecuadorian Andes
A frog in Ecuador's western Andean cloud forest changes skin texture in minutes, appearing to mimic the texture it sits on.
Researchers create first metal-free catalyst for rechargeable zinc-air batteries
Researchers from Case Western Reserve University and the University of North Texas have made what they believe is the first metal-free bifunctional electrocatalyst that performs as well or better than most metal and metal ...
Researchers find hidden meaning and 'speed limits' within genetic code
Case Western Reserve scientists have discovered that speed matters when it comes to how messenger RNA (mRNA) deciphers critical information within the genetic code—the complex chain of instructions critical to sustaining ...
Researchers bring clean energy a step closer
For nearly half a century, scientists have been trying to replace precious metal catalysts in fuel cells. Now, for the first time, researchers at Case Western Reserve University have shown that an inexpensive metal-free catalyst ...
Dark matter may be massive: Theorists suggest the Standard Model may account for the stuff
The physics community has spent three decades searching for and finding no evidence that dark matter is made of tiny exotic particles. Case Western Reserve University theoretical physicists suggest researchers consider looking ...
