This is a fantastic new Award Data Webtool that allows users to view a snapshot of NIH award data to individual institutions (searchable by name), including a breakdown by type of funding, by mechanism, by school, and by department. These data are all currently available in the Historic Ranking Information of the full Award Data Website, but you need to open individual files to get all the data for one institution. This is very convenient indeed. Data are available for FY2005, with FY2006 files “coming soon.” Of course, I can guarantee that the vice presidents/vice chancellors of research at major NIH-supported universities won’t be happy until these data are updated hourly …. What a nice present for the New Year from our poverty-stricken friends at the NIH!
