Federal Agencies Collaborating on Federal RePORTER

The National Institutes of Health is collaborating with other federal agencies to create Federal RePORTER, a web portal to search federal-funded science projects across multiple agencies.

In an NIH Office of Extramural Research blog post, Take a Look at the Science Research Supported by Federal Funders, Deputy Director for Extramural Research Sally Rockey describes the project, part of the STAR METRICS® program.

Federal RePORTER is still in alpha testing. However, the public is invited to try out the new search tool and provide feedback.

The database currently includes research projects funded by several Department of Health and Human Services divisions (NIH, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Food and Drug Administration, Administration for Children and Families, and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality), as well as the Environmental Protection Agency, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine and the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs of the Department of Defense, and the United States Department of Agriculture.
