Transparency in NIH funding

Obtaining research funding, particularly from the NIH, is an increasingly daunting task that requires a lot of background information in addition to presenting a stellar proposal.

Researchers need to decide which of the 25 institutes at the NIH is most likely to fund a particular line of work. A new database, linked to RePORTER, NIH’s research portfolio reporting tool, will make this decision a bit easier.

The editorial in the June issue of Nature Methods highlights the importance of this database and a Correspondence in the same issue describes its functionality.

The developers of this database welcome community feedback and we encourage you to try it out.
