NIH Matchmaker, a tool for finding similar NIH projects

Matchmaker is a new extension of the NIH RePORTER website system that makes it easy to find similar projects already funded by the NIH. Matchmaker takes user-submitted scientific text, and analyzes it for relevant terms and concepts and compare those terms and concepts to other funded research projects from the NIH. Matchmaker then returns up to 100 similar projects, including a graphical overview highlighting the study sections that reviewed similar projects, the NIH institutes and centers that funded the projects, and the activity codes of those similar projects.
