Scientific progress depends on providing adequate incentives to scientists to trying out new ideas. However, when an idea is new it may be risky for scientists to incorporate them in their work since most new ideas do not turn out to be useful.  In this talk, I will discuss new ways to measure whether biomedical scientist are trying out new ideas in their published work. Then, I will use these methods to ask whether NIH-funded biomedical work is more likely to try out recent the newest ideas than non-NIH funded published work.
