Discover the New Index of NCI Studies Web Application to Get NCI Research Outputs
Introducing the Index of NCI Studies: a web application designed in collaboration with NCI’s Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research to be a comprehensive account of research outputs (i.e., publications, data sets, clinical trials, patents) generated by NCI-funded programs. The application is currently in a pilot phase and now limited to showcasing only data generated through extramural grants from two NCI-funded programs: the Cancer MoonshotSM and the Childhood Cancer Data Initiative. However, we expect to provide information on additional programs and funding types in the future.
“We designed this web application to encourage an environment of FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data sharing in addition to reinforcing NCI’s commitment to transparency and accountability as the nation’s leader in cancer research,” shared Dr. Subhashini Jagu, CBIIT’s Scientific Policy and Program Branch A Chief, and Mark Cunningham, technical project manager of Frederick National Laboratory.
We encourage you to explore the application and check out the outputs collected for these two programs. If you have feedback on the current usability, as well as recommendations for how to adjust/enhance the application, please contact the Office of Data Sharing.
During the pilot phase, the web application will display information extracted from resources that hold publications (i.e., PubMed), data (specifically, the database of Genotypes and Phenotypes, Gene Expression Omnibus, and Sequence Read Archive), clinical trials (from ClinicalTrials.gov), and patents (U.S. Patent and Trademark Office).
