NIH Grants provides data on research projects funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), their abstracts, and publications and patents citing support from these projects. The data are separated into four major categories of files: Projects, Project Abstracts, Publications, and Patents. The data is sourced from ExPORTER site (owned by NIH).
As well as the standard ontologies, NIH grants includes its own domain specific ontology providing concepts classifying the types of grants awarded. Access to NIH grants can facilitate the development of new collaborations, and provide information on most recent research challenges, through the rapid discovery and recommendation of researchers, key opinion leaders, current expertise, and resources.
