One of questions that arose from the visualizations I published here a couple of days ago, was what proportion of grants go to metastatic breast cancer?
So I went back to SciVal Funding, and repeated the search I had done, but this time either included or excluded the word “metastatic”. This time I included international grants and smaller grants too. I did not repeat the work of cleaning up the recipient institutions names or add geolocation, beyond country, so the visualization is pretty high level. It is also possible that some grants were missed – they may not have had the word metastatic in the materials captured in the database (title of grant and part of the abstract). Lastly, all currencies are reported as US $ without converting them, so totals need to be taken with a grain of salt when looking at foreign grants.
Nevertheless, using this visualization you can get an impression of the proportion of grants that involve metastatic breast cancer both by country and by funding source.
