The Research, Condition, and Disease Categorization (RCDC) Project – Tracking NIH-funded research
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has created a new Web-based tool that will provide public access to detailed information on NIH research activities. Scheduled for a spring 2009 unveiling, the Research, Condition, and Disease Categorization (RCDC) system will sort more than 85,000 NIH-funded projects into 360 categories. The RCDC will provide access to three different types of NIH funding: extramural research grants, research and development contracts, and intramural research. The organization’s research activities have always been available on the NIH Web site. However, this new system is intended to provide more consistency in the reporting and categorization of the projects.
