June 20, 2011 - PRLog -- The development team of the International Aging Research Portfolio (IARP) today announced the launch of the beta version of FundingTrends.Org – a simple and effective online tool for comparing funding trends in biomedical research based on keywords and phrases used in successful grant applications.  This easy to use tool is designed for scientists, policy makers and the general public looking for additional data points on trends in biotechnology research.
FundingTrends.Org enables users to compare governmental and private spending on projects related to biomedical topics worldwide. Once the topics are specified, the tool produces  informative graphic representation of time-series by year and the total grant awarded. FundingTrends.Org uses the vast project database of Agingportfolio.org. “Our team is very impressed by the many trends analysis tools like Google Trends and Google Ngram. These resources are commonly used for understanding very general trends in search queries and literature without overwhelming the user with too much data. The International Aging Research Portfolio knowledge management system contains millions of grants and publications from many areas of science and may be used to get very granular and detailed answers. We designed FundingTrends.org as a visual resource that enables anyone to quickly understand the scale of investments into a specific area of research or biomedical funding trends worldwide ”, said Alex Zhavoronkov, PhD, the director of the International Aging Research Portfolio project.
