  • 01/13/2009 - Resource Digs Deep into NCI's Research Funding
    It is critically important that scientific investments made by NCI be transparent, ensuring accountability of the Institute and providing essential information to the entire cancer community who tirelessly advocate on behalf of patients. Since its creation in 1937, NCI has been tracking its research portfolio and over time has developed a robust system for coding each research project the Institute supports. NCI uses highly trained, experienced indexers who carefully review each grant to ensure that a given project's contributions are adequately captured, allowing the dollars associated with the project to be assigned to specific categories.
