IPaT Research Reminder: 
Federal RePORTER

When we first started to include this section in our IPaT monthly newsletter, there was a piece on the use of the Federal RePORTER tool. Recently (June 6th Blog), Dr. Micheal Laurer – NIH’s Deputy Director for Extramural Research wrote an article on the importance of this tool to the scientific community – prospective applicants and awardees. He stated, “I often shared the NIH RePORTER resource as a tool for exploring the research topics NIH supports. Learning what projects we support, using a robust database of historical and newly-funded projects (updated weekly), provides researchers valuable insight as they consider developing their own research programs and applications for funding” (Laurer, 2017). This resource and many others are available to equip researchers to successfully navigate the proposal process and prepare meritorious proposals.  For more on this tool, please visit the NIH website for the full content of Laurer's article.
