This time, a presentation on the NIH Investment direct from OER. NIH policy wonks will be delighted, though I’m still looking for that elusive graph that plots R01s awarded in response to RFAs (what the NIH calls “solicited”) vs those in response to PAs & PARs & PAS (what I would call solicited or at least semi-solicited but the NIH considers unsolicited) vs those in response to the plain jane parent PA (truly investigator initiated). Drugmonkey should be able to find trends of interest lurking in graphs stacked with colors so similar it’s maddening even if you aren’t colorblind. Or maybe being a deuteranope is advantageous here in this sea of blues, greens, and blue-greens. In any case, data associated with the slides are linked within the publication and can be accessed by right clicking the slide, selecting “edit slide”, and then double clicking the graphic. What fun.
