Looking for health-related research supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH)? Use the newly developed NIH Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools (RePORT), a one-stop shop for information on NIH research portfolio, serving as an effective tool to communicate with the research community, legislators, institutional officials, health advocates, and the general public.
1. Promote prevention and wellness by providing the public with easy access to information on NIH-supported projects and investigators, research findings, news, and clinical trials related to their personal health issues. Through state-of-the-art tools for searching the NIH portfolio and innovative linkages to other information geared more toward consumers, we are able to communicate better the relationship of NIH-funded research to public health issues and deliver this information in terms the public can understand.
2. Accelerate the process of scientific discovery to improve patient care by allowing members of the research community to make connections with other researchers, find the latest information on past and ongoing research projects, develop ideas for new research, and obtain federal support for innovative research with a potential for high impact.
3. Promote program integrity, accountability, and transparency: The extent of the information available through RePORT is unprecedented. The success of, and acclamation for, RePORT has helped promote a culture of open government at NIH.
