Computer Retrieval of Information on Scientific Projects CRISP [http://crisp.cit.nih.gov/] - CRISP (Computer Retrieval of Information on Scientific Projects) is a searchable database of federally funded biomedical research projects conducted at universities, hospitals, and other research institutions. The database, maintained by the Office of Extramural Research at the National Institutes of Health, includes projects funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHSA), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP), Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ), and Office of Assistant Secretary of Health (OASH). Users, including the public, can use the CRISP interface to search for scientific concepts, emerging trends and techniques, or identify specific projects and/or investigators.
The CRISP database provides a user interface to search for scientific concepts, emerging trends and techniques, and to identify specific projects and/or investigators. CRISP contains only Research and Development (R&D) awards from 1972 to present. The mechanisms excluded in the database are Training Programs (A), Health Professions (E), Community Service (H) and Inter/Intra Agency Agreements (Y). Most of the research falls within the broad category of extramural projects, grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements conducted primarily by universities, hospitals, and other research institutions.
