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.
Study finds the family "taxi" might be the ideal place to develop a child's interest in music
Case Western Reserve University music educator Lisa Huisman Koops realized during the daily 20-minute commute to her daughter's preschool that the family vehicle might be an ideal—and overlooked—place to develop a child's ...
Students to hack hardware, software and data to build security skills
Come fall, students at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland State University will begin hacking computers—for credit.
Mercury contracted more than prior estimates, evidence shows
New evidence gathered by NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft at Mercury indicates the planet closest to the sun has shrunk up to 7 kilometers in radius over the past 4 billion years, much more than earlier estimates.
Search interface allows for more efficient, faster searches to find information on internet and hand-held devices
Computer scientists at Case Western Reserve University have developed a new tool to search and fetch electronic files that saves users time by more quickly identifying and retrieving the most relevant information on their ...
Nanoparticle pinpoints blood vessel plaques
A team of researchers, led by scientists at Case Western Reserve University, has developed a multifunctional nanoparticle that enables magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to pinpoint blood vessel plaques caused by atherosclerosis. ...
Book pulls appplications from abstract mathematics
Mathematics can explain how light waves propagate in a fiber optic cable or that a linear flow of air over a plane's wings gives passengers a smooth ride, while nonlinear flow causes turbulence.
Developing methods for building precise nanostructures
Researchers at Case Western Reserve University have received a $540,000 federal grant to devise methods for building minute structures tailored to precisely deliver medicines to tumors or carry dyes that help imaging technologies ...
The unlikely role of private enterprise in managing global environmental preservation
Business gets blasted for not only ignoring the world's environmental problems, but for contributing to them. But a new book by Case Western Reserve University political scientist Jessica F. Green explains how private firms, ...
A new species of horse, 4.4 million years old
Two teams of researchers, including a scientist from Case Western Reserve University, have announced the discovery of a new species of fossil horse from 4.4 million-year-old fossil-rich deposits in Ethiopia.
Horse behavior in the field
A nudge from the nose of a free-roaming zebra, or towering, 2,500-pound Clydesdale draft horse, might send others running.
Researchers report nanoscale energy-efficient switching devices
By relentlessly miniaturizing a pre-World War II computer technology, and combining this with a new and durable material, researchers at Case Western Reserve University have built nanoscale switches and logic ...
Paleoanthropologist assembles past from artifacts
In the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine's search to understand early human tooth development, renowned paleoanthropologist Bruce Latimer has begun to reconstruct what life was like more than 20,000 ...
Nanodiamond production in ambient conditions opens door for flexible electronics, implants and more
Instead of having to use tons of crushing force and volcanic heat to forge diamonds, researchers at Case Western Reserve University have developed a way to cheaply make nanodiamonds on a lab bench at atmospheric ...
Non-specific and specific RNA binding proteins found to be fundamentally similar
Researchers from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have found unexpected similarities between proteins that were thought to be fundamentally different.
Feds fund concept for cheaper, better titanium made in US
A Case Western Reserve University proposal for a low-cost, energy-efficient method to extract the strategic metal titanium from ore has been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy ...
