The CRISP query tool which provides a searchable database of biomedical research projects funded by NIH will be retired Oct. 31, 2009. For many years, CRISP was one of the most common ways for the public to find information on NIH research programs. The CRISP system has been replaced by the RePORT Expenditures and Results (RePORTER) tool.
