NIH is the largest public funder of biomedical research in the world, which also means we have a lot of funding data! To get at-a-glance graphics and tables of NIH funding trends on grant awards, you can explore the NIH Data Book.
The HHS-declared public health emergency for COVID-19 ended on May 11, 2023 (NOT-OD-23-095). With this milestone, we are also closing out our series of blogs on the distributions of gender and race of designated principal investigators (PIs) of R01 and RPG applications submitted before and after the onset of the pandemic. This final post builds on previous … Continue reading “Final Career Stage Analyses of Applications Submitted During the Pandemic (Part 7)”
Over the past two years, we supported 1,412 early stage investigators (ESIs) in fiscal year (FY) 2020 and 1,513 in FY 2021, which were both all-time highs. These ESIs were first-time Principal Investigators (PIs) designated on type 1 (new) R01-equivalent awards. Today, we are pleased to announce that even more ESIs were supported in FY 2022 as part of our continued Next Generation Researchers Initiative (NGRI) efforts.
Check Out These Public Federal Funding Databases to Learn More About Funding at NIH and Other Federal Agencies
We often recommend the NIH RePORT (Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools) site to applicants & awardees because it publicly provides reports, data, and analyses of NIH research activities. But there are also other federal databases available to learn more about funding at NIH and other federal agencies.
NIH is launching a pilot on May 15, 2023, to improve the quality, accuracy, and transparency of project data for awarded NIH R&D contracts to promote the highest level of public accountability (see NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-23-115). Six contract vendors have been selected to participate in the pilot. These vendors will directly enter select project data … Continue reading “Pilot Starting May 15 to Improve NIH R&D Contracts Project Data”
It can be very helpful to tap NIH-funded researchers at your own institution to provide feedback on your application or to serve as mentors. NIH RePORTER is a super easy way to identify NIH-funded investigators at your institution (or elsewhere) who may be willing to help.
We are pleased to share our annual snapshot of how many researchers NIH supports.
In this post, we analyze funding rates for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 to FY 2022 mentored career development award (K) applicants according to the race-ethnicity of designated Principal Investigators (PIs).
Analyses of Demographic-Specific Funding Rates for Type 1 Research Project Grant and R01-Equivalent Applications
In this post, we analyze funding rates for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 to FY 2022 Type 1 Research Project Grant (RPG) and Type 1 R01-Equivalent applicants according to the race-ethnicity of designated Principal Investigators (PIs).
In this post we show the estimated number of postdoctoral researchers (“postdocs”) supported in recent years by NIH grants. We gathered these data in coordination with the Advisory Committee to the Director’s (ACD) Working Group on Re-envisioning NIH-Supported Postdoctoral Training.
