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.
Parts of moon interior contains as much water as Earth's upper mantle
Parts of the moon's interior contains as much water as the upper mantle of the Earth - 100 times more of the precious liquid than measured before research from Case Western Reserve University, Carnegie Institution ...
Bioinspired material mimics squid beak
(Phys.org) —Researchers led by scientists at Case Western Reserve University have turned to an unlikely model to make medical devices safer and more comfortable—a squid's beak.
Stem cell proliferation and differentiation observed within hydrogel
Stem cells can be coaxed to grow into new bone or new cartilage better and faster when given the right molecular cues and room inside a water-loving gel, researchers at Case Western Reserve University show.
MOND used to predict key property in Andromeda's satellites
Using modified laws of gravity, researchers from Case Western Reserve University and Weizmann Institute of Science closely predicted a key property measured in faint dwarf galaxies that are satellites of the nearby giant ...
Oldest fossil rodents in South America confirms animals from Africa
In a literal walk through time along the Ucayali River near Contamana, Peru, a team of researchers found rodent fossils at least 41 million years old by far the oldest on the South American continent.
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.
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 ...
Nearby dwarf galaxy and possible protogalaxy discovered
(Phys.org)—Peering deep into the dim edges of a distorted pinwheel galaxy in the constellation Ursa Major (the Great Bear), astronomers at Case Western Reserve University and their colleagues have discovered a faint dwarf ...
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.
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 ...
