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.
Quasars: Mileposts marking the universe's expansion
Scientists can't travel deep space the way Columbus sailed and charted the New World or Lewis and Clark mapped the west. But, researchers at Case Western Reserve University and two partnering institutions have found a possible ...
Genome of Plasmodium vivax malaria-causing parasite sequenced
Scientists at Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute have discovered that the parasite that causes the most common form of malaria share the same genetic variations – even when ...
Nanoparticles added to platelets double internal injury survival rate
(Phys.org)—Nanoparticles tailored to interact with platelets rapidly create healthy clots and nearly double the survival rate in the vital first hour after injury, new research shows.
Exposing cancer's lethal couriers: Nanochains mark micrometastases for early diagnosis, treatment
Malignant cells that leave a primary tumor, travel the bloodstream and grow out of control in new locations cause the vast majority of cancer deaths. New nanotechnology developed at Case Western Reserve University detects ...
New material absorbs, conserves oil (w/ Video)
An ultra-lightweight sponge made of clay and a bit of high-grade plastic draws oil out of contaminated water but leaves the water behind.
Platinum is wrong stuff for fuel cells as it wastes energy, researcher suggests
Fuel cells are inefficient because the catalyst most commonly used to convert chemical energy to electricity is made of the wrong material, a researcher at Case Western Reserve University argues. Rather than continue the ...
CWRU philosopher examines the hypothesis vs. exploratory funding divide
A Case Western Reserve University professor wondered why some types of research were more apt to secure federal grants, while others—especially exploratory science—often didn't.
Researchers love triangles: Shaped catalysts spark longer, faster-growing, rule-breaking nanowires
A research team at Case Western Reserve University has found that gold catalysts shaped in the form of a cube, triangle, or other higher order structures grow nanowires about twice as fast and twice as long compared to wires ...
Magnetic nanochain detonates chemo barrage inside tumors
Medicine-toting nanochains slip into tumors and explode a chemotherapy drug into hard-to-reach cores of cancer, engineers and scientists at Case Western Reserve University report.
Engineers propose method to eliminate wasted energy in computer processors
In today's computer processors, much of the power put into running the processor is being wasted.
