I should note that when we started to receive comments on what was to become the NIH DMS Policy, one thing in particular stood out to us. Many commentors told us it would be helpful to have clear information on how to protect the privacy and respect the autonomy of participants when sharing data. Now, we all know that cliffhangers build anticipation, so without further delay, I want to share with you some of the tools NIH has been working on to answer that call.
Looking for a grant award you heard about? Go here! Perhaps how many trainees NIH supported? You got it! Research spending on a certain disease? Done! Comparing NIH to another federal funder? Look no further! As you can see, NIH shares a quite diverse array of data associated with our funded grants in a transparent way. But, that does not mean we share everything.
