On Aug. 1 the NIH Division of Nutrition Research Coordination will become the NIDDK Office of Nutrition Research. The HNRIM database will be taken down by late March. Results of published studies can be found through the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed database, and information about NIH-funded research projects can be found in NIH’s Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools website (RePORT).

About the HNRIM System

Federal Human Nutrition Research and Information Management (HNRIM) System Database

The Human Nutrition Research and Information Management (HNRIM) system database provides information on human nutrition research and research training activities supported in whole or in part by the Federal Government. Each participating agency assembles and submits its own data, which are then combined into the main HNRIM system database. The database contains several thousand projects for each of fiscal years 1985–present, and includes the following types of information about each project:

  • sponsoring organization
  • project identifier numbers
  • project title
  • principal investigator
  • organization name, address
  • nutrition classification categories
  • project abstract
  • percent nutrition related
  • fiscal year and start date

The HNRIM database was developed in accordance with the National Agricultural Research, Extension, and Teaching Policy Act of 1977 (7 USC 3177). Participating agencies include the Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Department of Veteran Affairs, the Agency for International Development, the Department of Defense, Department of Commerce, National Science Foundation, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The database is maintained at the Division of Nutrition Research Coordination, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, National Institutes of Health, under the auspices of the Interagency Committee on Human Nutrition Research.
