The IARP team announces the publication of methods and algorithms in PLoS One
The methods and algorithms used in the IARP project, a system tracking biomedical grants and publications in 23 countries, were published in PLoS One and are available online
By: Eli Mohamad
The AgingPortfolio.Org system tracks science grant funding from over 23 countries and includes the grant databases from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), European Commission (EC), national research councils of Australia, Canada and other countries.
Many thanks to our many collaborators. Over 60 volunteers from 11 countries participated in developing this system. Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or ideas.
Other resources using the full IARP database of international grants are:
- FundingTrends.Org – a trends analysis tool for keywords in biomedical grants inspired by Google Trends.
- Aging.CC – a simple search interface for all of the grants in the IARP database.
The Wikipedia article is available at http://en.wikipedia.org/
Video tutorials on how to use the system are available at http://www.youtube.com/
“Aging is a complex area of research of natural as well as social and behavioral sciences. The IARP project is one of the first attempts to structure knowledge in gerontology and related areas and to provide tools to analyze trends, funding flows, areas of research, commercial applications and individual research projects from all over the world. The searcheable database is not limited to aging includes all of the published grants from multiple sources and scientists in many fields can use it to explore the funding landscape in their areas of research, identify potential collaborators or competing projects”, said Alex Zhavoronkov, PhD, the director of the IARP project.

The objectives of IARP are:
- To provide a centralized decision support system for scientists, research institutes, funding organizations and policy makers involved in aging research
- To track and accelerate progress in aging research worldwide
