Four Named Winners of Faculty Distinguished Research Award
For the past 15 years, Research ShowCASE has brought the Case Western Reserve University community together to celebrate remarkable inventions, solutions and discoveries of research. In recent years at this event, the university has recognized outstanding faculty contributions with the Faculty Distinguished Research Award.
Though the recipients can’t be recognized in person today—the original scheduled date for Research ShowCASE—CWRU is honoring four professors whose groundbreaking research has made waves within engineering, medicine, physics and nursing. Each recipient is awarded $10,000 in research funds and, earlier in the semester, they each received a plaque during an in-person surprise visit from President Barbara R. Snyder, Provost Ben Vinson III and Vice President for Research and Technology Management Suzanne Rivera.
