Aug. 10, 2011 - PRLog -- The team of the International Aging Research Portfolio (IARP) is pleased to announce that the methods and algorithms used in the IARP project were published in PLoS One open-access journal and the full text publication titled "Methods for Structuring Scientific Knowledge from Many Areas Related to Aging Research" is available on-line .

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 .
Video tutorials on how to use the system are available at .

“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
