BioMed Search

BioMedSearch is a biomedical search engine that contains NIH/PubMed documents, plus a large collection of theses, dissertations, and other publications not found anywhere else for free, making it the most comprehensive free search on the web.

The Office of Extramural Research’s Division of Information Services (DIS) recently launched a public prototype of its Reports, Data, and Analyses (RDA) Website, which will eventually replace the current Award Information and Data page.

The site is designed to provide improved reliability and consistency of reporting and to facilitate access to standardized reports.

DIS, in collaboration with the Office of Portfolio Analysis and Strategic Initiatives’ Portfolio Analysis and Scientific Opportunities Branch, developed a proposal to use the RDA Web site as the foundation for a broader NIH-wide Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tool (RePORT). The goal of RePORT is to improve internal and public access to data on NIH research programs, facilitate evaluation and management of research portfolios and satisfy certain reporting requirements of the NIH Reform Act of 2006. Also, RePORT will be used to automate certain aspects of the NIH biennial reporting process.
RePORT is part of a larger initiative that includes an effort to improve OER’s reporting business practices, experiment with new ways of reporting and better meet the information needs of NIH’s stakeholders.

Together, the RDA Web site and additional RePORT capabilities will provide the central source for public reporting on NIH-wide research activities.

RePORT will provide an upgrade to the current Computer Retrieval of Information on Scientific Projects (CRISP) system, which integrates new and existing data sources to allow user-defined querying and reporting on NIH grants, intramural projects, and contracts. The current CRISP system will be sunset in an effort to offer its users enhanced options for searching NIH-funded research.

TIGRR

The upcoming Training in Grantsmanship for Rehabilitation Research (TIGRR) workshop builds upon the successful model used by the Enhancing Rehabilitation Research in the South (ERRIS) workshops that resulted in many junior investigators receiving NIH and NIDRR level research funding.

Unlike passive seminars on grant writing, selected mentees will come prepared to complete at least the specific aims for a grant proposal for submission to the NIH or other funding agency. This offering is based upon a 10 year history of successfully providing mentorship to approximately 300 Junior and mid-level faculty from throughout the North America and in several foreign countries
Please see the attached letter and brochure for more details and also check out the website.
