- Fiscal Year
The fiscal year in which the project was funded. Note: FY 2008 data are currently being added. FY 2006 and earlier data is forthcoming. All projects and project data are not currently available for these years.
- Cancer Type (Disease site)
Cancer types as defined by NCI-designated cancer organ sites, such as Breast or Liver; or related cancers, such as Hodgkins Lymphoma, are reporting categories for NCI research projects.
- Research Topic (Special Interest Category [SIC])
Special Interest Categories describe the major scientific disciplines that are of stated or growing interest to the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Health and Human Services, Congress, and the public. Examples of SICs are Nanotechnology and Drug Development. SICs are reporting categories for NCI research projects.
The keywords box allows you to enter other words or phrases you'd like to search for, such as scientific terms, names, or text from project abstracts. Separate each keyword with a space. To search for a specific phrase, use quotation marks around the phrase. For example: "breast cancer"
You may also search using multiple words or phrases. To do this, combine words or phrases with "and" or "or" and use parentheses for grouping. For example: (clinical and prostate) or (clinical and "breast cancer")
- Research Type (Common Scientific Outline [CSO])
The Research Type or Common Scientific Outline (CSO) is a coding system used by public and private organizations in the US, UK, and Canada to describe research projects. The development of the CSO provides a framework to improve coordination among research organizations, making it possible to compare the research portfolios of public, non-profit, and governmental research agencies. The CSO is organized around seven broad areas of scientific interest in cancer research, including:
- Early detection, Diagnosis, and Prognosis
- Cancer Control, Survivorship, and Outcomes Research
- Scientific Model Systems
- Relevant Funding
The relevant funding is the portion of the funded amount relevant to a specific code (a research topic or a cancer type). This number can be found by multiplying the funded amount by the percent relevance for the code in question.
For example: For a project with a funded amount of $120,000 which has been coded with 50% relevance to the cancer type "esophagus," then this project has relevant funding of $60,000 (120000 x .50) for "esophagus."
- Funded Amount
The amount of funding, in U.S. dollars, that was awarded to this project.
