Improving Trauma-Informed Practices in Kenya

Youth Participatory Action Research is a unique initiative designed to engage middle and high school students in conducting systematic scholarship around pressing social issues that can improve their own lives and the communities they live in. Through a new national research project, Cleveland State University will examine the impact of these programs both as a learning model and as a vehicle for social change. The effort will assess the effectiveness of YPAR initiatives being undertaken in California, Colorado, New Jersey and Cleveland public schools.

Improving Treatment of Cardiovascular Diseases

Chandra Kothapalli, associate professor of chemical and biomedical engineering at CSU, is seeking to reduce the incidence of aneurysms through the use of novel nanoparticles that could arrest protein degradation in blood vessels, a key factor in the development of this deadly condition. Through a new $600,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, Kothapalli and colleagues at Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute will expand on previous pilot tests by investigating the effectiveness of such nanoparticles on human tissues.
