NIH Inclusion Data by Research and Disease Category Now Available
This reporting step continues our move towards enhancing transparency and accountability of the research we support. As part of implementing the 21st Century Cures Act and responding to recommendations from the Government Accountability Office, public reporting by NIH Research, Condition, and Disease Classification (RCDC) category helps ensure that women and minorities are appropriately included in biomedical research across a diverse array of diseases and conditions. At a recent meeting of the NIH Advisory Committee on Research on Women’s Health (go to 02:45), where this announcement was made, we also reported that ...

How Many Researchers? …Revisited…the FY 2018 NIH’s Cumulative Investigator Rate
In March 2018, we showed data suggesting that, despite still being in a state of hyper-competition (as described in this post), the severity may be lessening. The number of unique applicants for NIH research project grants (RPGs) appeared to stabilize after many years of uninterrupted growth. Furthermore, a person-based metric, called the cumulative investigator rate, started to rise in fiscal year (FY) 2015 for RPGs after declines in previous years. With FY 2018 grants information now available in the NIH Data Book, we wanted to see if this positive trend continued. As in my March 2018 blog, the FY 2018 cumulative...
