It includes tissue banks and tissue procurement systems with access to normal, benign precancerous and cancerous human tissue from a variety of organs.


NIH Stem Cell Registry

The official NIH resource for stem cell research.


PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), comprises more than 22 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.


National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)

The National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health by providing access to biomedical and genomic information.


Active Point of Care Technology Projects at NIH (Data as of Sept 19, 2019)

Explore all actively funded NIH Projects on point of care technologies - technologies that bring care to the patient, rather than take the patient to care.  This broadly inclusive Trans-NIH Database utilizes NIH Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools (RePORT) to quickly search Projects, Publications, Patents, Clinical Studies, Data and Visualizations, News and more.  Please contact Dr. Rishi A. Mathura ( with questions or comments.

Mammalian Gene Collection

The goal of the Mammalian Gene Collection (MGC), a trans-NIH initiative, is to provide researchers with unrestricted access to sequence-validated full-length protein-coding (FL-CDS) cDNA clones for human, mouse, and rat genes.
