The Human Nutrition Research Information Management (HNRIM) system is a database which provides information on human nutrition research and research training activities supported in whole or in part by the Federal Government. The database contains several thousand projects for each of the fiscal years 1985 to the present. HNRIM has recently been redeveloped and now contains more search and download fields as well as new reporting features. HNRIM is searchable by HNRIM category (cancer, maternal nutrition, genetics and nutrition, nutrient interactions, etc), RFA/PA, Funding Agency, Principal Investigator, key word or by several other fields. In addition to new search fields, the database has many new fields available for download, so search results can be sorted and viewed in many different ways. The HNRIM website also has some standard “annual reports” available to print or download. Reports include Funding by Agency or IC, by HNRIM Category or by Funding Mechanism.
The most recent data in the database is NIH FY 2011 records. In FY 2011, the NIH spent $1.4 billion to fund over 4,000 nutrition-related projects. NIH nutrition research funding decreased by approximately $200 million between FY 2010 and FY 2011. The reduction in funding is largely due to the termination of ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) stimulus funding which was available for FYs 2009 and 2010.
