RBVI Annual Report Information

Our funding agency, the NIH National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) requires us to prepare a detailed annual report each year. In recent years we have been using web-based tools to collect the data NIH requires of our users. In response to user feedback, in 2004 we completely redesigned the software we use to collect report data. The key changes to the system are:

All reports are entered using the Annual Report Submission Form. When you access this web page, you will be asked to provide a login ID and password; use the same ID and password as you normally use to access host socrates. The form will provide you with a list of the reports for each project that you described last year (if any), or the project abstract you provided when requesting your account (new users only). You can then edit these reports and update any of the relevant information, and create a new report(s) if appropriate.

We realize that reporting on your research progress annually is yet another burden for you, but the UCSF Resource for Biocomputing, Visualization, and Informatics (RBVI) exists in part because of the generous funding we receive from the NIH, and generating a detailed annual report is a requirement of this funding.


If you have any questions or issues about our annual report, please contact Tom Ferrin, Principal Investigator of the RBVI.

NOTE: The annual report submission form uses features found only on relatively new web browsers. Attemping to view and enter data using an old browser may cause unpredictable results. We have successfully tested the form using the following browsers:
