The State of Ohio has taken a bold step in its efforts to bolster its economy and the research being done at its universities.
The state's Third Frontier Commission and University System of Ohio have made monetary awards to 10 university collaborations so they can attract researchers and their federal research grants and staff members to Ohio. Cleveland State University will get $900,000 to strengthen its cardiovascular repair and tissue engineering research collaborative with the Cleveland Clinic. Universities submitted proposals for funds based on their areas of academic and research strengths.
Our research efforts are recognized nationally and globally. Last year, CSU received more than $42 million for research from such prestigious organizations as the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, NASA Glenn Research Center, the March of Dimes and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Our biomedical and healthcare partnerships, which began in 1973 with the Cleveland Clinic, now include University Hospitals Health System, MetroHealth Medical Center and St. Vincent Hospital, all of which allow us to focus our expertise on new avenues of research, patient care and education.
