Dietary Supplement Ingredients

Use this box to specify one or more dietary supplements or ingredients being studied. If you do not make any selection, you will retrieve projects for all dietary supplements and ingredients.

 

Health Outcomes

Use this box to specify one or more health outcomes or biological effects being studied. If you do not make any selection, you will retrieve projects for all health outcomes or biological effects.

 

Study Type

Use this box to specify one or more research methodologies used by a project or program. If you do not make any selection, you will retrieve projects for all types of studies.

 

Relevance

Use this box to specify if you want to retrieve research projects that are directly related or indirectly related to dietary supplements. For example, a clinical trial comparing bone density in women given a daily calcium supplement versus a placebo would be classified as directly related to dietary supplements. Conversely, a study examining the activation of steroid hormone receptors by supplemental vitamin D in cell culture would be classified as indirectly related to dietary supplements because the direct physiological or health effects of vitamin D supplementation are not being studied.

Click on the desired option to include it in your search. If you do not make any selection, you will retrieve projects that are both directly and indirectly related to dietary supplements. Most of the projects in CARDS are coded as directly related.



Text Search

You may enter one or more terms to search within the project Title, Abstract, Specific Aims, Project Terms and Spending Categories. You may limit the fields to search in using the associated text boxes. "And" will return only records containing all terms while "Or" will return records containing any of the terms submitted.

The "Advanced" logic option provides additional capability to narrow selection criteria more precisely, and evaluate complex entries such as chemical references. The use of the Boolean operators: AND, OR, NOT, "double quotes", and (parentheses) to control operational precedence are all permitted.

 

Investigator

Use this box to specify a specific Principal Investigator / Project Leader by name. The PI is an individual designated by the grantee to direct the project or activity being supported by the grant. He or she is responsible and accountable to the grantee and NIH for the proper conduct of the project or activity.

State

Use this box to specify the state or territory of the institution with which the researcher (principal investigator or PI) is affiliated.

 

Admin/Funding Agency

Use this box to specify the Federal Agency responsible for administering the research grant or contract (Admin IC) or funding (Funding IC) the research. Admin is selected by default. Please note that Funding IC data is only available for funded NIH projects.

 

Grant Number

1 — a single digit Type Code. The Type code indicates whether the application is new(1), a renewal(2), a non-competitive applications(5), or other type.

811099 — a six digit Serial Number assigned by the NIH Center for Scientific Review (CSR).

01 — a two digit code for Support Year. The Support Year indicates the current year of support (for example, 01 is a new grant).

A1S1 — the Suffix Code (optional) is used for supplements, amendments, or fellowship institutional allowances.

RFA/PA

Use this box to specify one or more codes identifying specific Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA). Leaving this box empty will return projects for any FOA (or none). For a list of NIH FOAs please see https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/index.html

Organization

Use this box to specify the institution with which the researcher (principal investigator or PI) is affiliated. Enter the institution's name or the first few letters of the name. You can leave this box blank to include all institutions.

Limit Search to

Limit Search to Use these checkboxes to limit the search to only those appications with the appropriate characteristics (Clinical Trials, Children Clinical Studies, Phasse 3 Clinical Trials or all grants with Human Subjet components). Leaving all boxes unchecked will return all grants regardless of characteristics.

Study Section

Use this box to identify the specific group responsible for the review of grant applications in an area of science. Study sections are grouped into larger Integrated Review Groups (IRGs). Leave this box empty to search grants from any Study Section. Study section codes and rosters of current study sections can be found at http://www.csr.nih.gov/Committees/rosterindex.asp.

Project Number(s)

Use this box to specify one or more specific project numbers. For grants, this unique identification number is composted of the type code, activity code, Institute/Center code, serial number, support year, and/or suffix code.
