The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the largest public funder of health research in the United States. According to its organization-wide strategic plan, a key priority is supporting research into conditions with the greatest disease burden.1 Since 2009, the NIH has informed the public about allocation of funds for over 280 selected conditions through its annual Research, Condition, and Disease Categorization (RCDC) process. Reports are generated by text analysis of funded grants and contracts, searching for keywords related to the selected conditions.2
