New from NIH RePORTER: Matchmaker

The NIH RePORTER, or Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools website, is our go-to resource for finding out what types of projects are being funded by different institutes and study sections. This week, the NIH announced a new search tool within RePORTER called Matchmaker that allows you to paste in a  full abstract and search for similar funded projects.

Arguably the coolest part of this new tool is that it automatically creates charts of the most common study sections, institutes and centers, and activity codes for your type of project.

Try Matchmaker — we had trouble using Internet Explorer, so we recommend Firefox or Chrome.
