NIH Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools (RePORT)

The National Institutes of Health offers a variety of tools to search and view their funded projects. Such searches can be especially useful for researchers seeking NIH funding.

Within NIH RePORTer, users can search by keyword, investigator, institution, even program officer. On the second tab, you can browse projects in each Institute. The third tab is a “Matchmaker” feature currently under development. In this section, you can paste some text about your own project and RePORTer will pull up similar projects and summarize which institutes are most likely to fund projects in this area.
