The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the nation’s medical research agency —making important discoveries that improve health and save lives.
New to NIH
The Streamlined Non-competing Award Process (SNAP) is the ability to submit a streamlined annual progress report. eSNAP provides the ability for eligible grantee institutions to electronically submit SNAP progress reports through the eRA Commons. It is specific to NIH.
NIH Public Access Policy
The NIH now requires public access to NIH funded research publications. See the link for details.
The NIH has a website where information is available about grants and the research they fund. The Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tool (RePORT) has a ‘user friendly system,’ the RePORT Expenditures and Results, or RePORTER system. RePORTER combines NIH project databases and funding records, PubMed abstracts, full text articles from PubMed Central, and information from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office with a robust search engine, allowing users to locate descriptions and funding details on NIH-funded projects along with research results that site NIH support. RePORTER replaces NIH’s CRISP system.
