HRA Reporter Captures the Role of Nonprofits in Funding Biomedical Research

The HRA Reporter is a real time, searchable database of awards made by its 75 members. As of the launch, the database represents $8.9 billion in funding and over 31,000 separate grants from 2006 to the present.

The goal of the HRA Reporter is to represent the full scope of awards by nonprofit organizations to provide a clearer picture of the biomedical research funding landscape. It will enable data-driven and strategic grantmaking by nonprofits, governments and the biopharmaceutical industry, and foster collaboration between organizations with aligned programs and missions.
