DERT Search function

By NIEHS
May 2006

A new search capability has been added to the NIEHS Extramural Research Portfolio web pages. All active NIEHS grants can now be searched by principal investigator, institution name, grant number, project title, description, abstract, and/or CRISP terms/keywords. To access the new search screen, choose the Specific Search link or button on the Portfolio home page.

Any portion of a search field can be entered to yield results. For example, to pull up a list of all active R01 grants, enter R01 in the grant number field. Or, to find all active grants that have DNA repair in the grant abstract, enter DNA Repair in the Description/Abstract field.

Searches can be conducted using two different words or phrases in the Project Title, Description/Abstract, and CRISP Terms/Keywords fields, using the and/or operator. For example, DNA Repair can be entered in the first field of the Title, choose the and operator, and enter Mouse in the second field, to yield a list of all grants with DNA Repair and Mouse in the title.

Any combination of two or more fields can be used to perform a search. For example, you can enter R01 in the Grant Number field and DNA Repair in the Project Title field, to yield a list of all active R01 grants with DNA Repair in the title. Or, enter R01 in the Grant Number field, DNA Repair in the Description/Abstract field, and Mouse in the CRISP Terms/Keywords field, to yield a list of all active R01 grants with DNA Repair in the grant abstract and Mouse in the CRISP terms.

Searches by science code or state can still be conducted using the science code or state links on the Portfolio home page, or by using the Enter the Site button at the bottom of the home page. And, search results can be downloaded into an Excel spreadsheet or Word document.

Searches saved to an Excel spreadsheet provide the capability of linking back to grant information in the Portfolio web pages by clicking on one of the Title links; or linking back to a list of publications associated with a grant by clicking on the highlighted number in the Pub field.
