Cancer researchers can track down possible collaborators or pinpoint promising areas for future studies by logging on to the International Cancer Research Portfolio, a clearinghouse of grants awarded in the United States and the United Kingdom. The new site lists some 13,000 grants from 17 underwriters of cancer studies, including government agencies such as the U.S. National Cancer Institute and charities such as Cancer Research UK. The listings use a common vocabulary and format to make searching easier. You can scan the database by scientist, type of cancer, general area of research (prevention, treatment, and so on), or funding agency. Entries provide the affiliation of the principal investigator and an abstract of the proposed work.
