Matchmaker updated with drilldown charts
In our last issue we introduced Matchmaker, a new query interface for RePORTER, which lets you submit abstracts or other scientific text to find similar projects. Matchmaker mines the terms and concepts in your text and returns a list of 100 similar projects.
Matchmaker also automatically creates charts of the most common study sections, institutes/centers, and activity codes in your list of similar projects.
Figure 1: Matchmaker charts associations of projects with Institute/Center, Activity Codes, and Study Sections.
Just added to Matchmaker are drill-down charts which can help you narrow in on which study sections, ICs, and activities are associated with your similar projects. After running a Matchmaker search, click on the bar graph for the specific institute/center, activity code and study section of interest. The page charts will be redrawn to show the subset of results.

You can click the small [x] to remove the filter and view the full set of results again.

These charts and raw data will help you plan for future application submissions, find collaborators, and understand how your projects fit within the portfolio of funded NIH research. Try Matchmaker today!
Navigating back and forth between sub-projects and parent projects
We recently added a mechanism in RePORTER to provide simpler navigation between awarded parent projects and sub-projects.
- When viewing a subproject, you can jump to the parent project by clicking the hyperlinked parent project number, and the project details from the parent project will appear in a pop-up window
- When viewing a parent project, you can view each sub-project by visiting the tab and clicking the sub-project number (Sub #) for each subproject
NIH project funding data now available for the last 25 years
Since RePORTER launched in 2008, project funding has been available for all NIH projects from FY2000 forward. This spring, we released project funding data for NIH projects for FY1989 - FY1999, meaning the full 25 years of funding data are now available through RePORTER.
