Research Resources

Cell & Tissue

The Specimen Resource Locator is a database to help researchers locate human specimens (tissue, serum, DNA/RNA, other specimens) for cancer research. It includes tissue banks and tissue procurement systems with access to normal, benign precancerous and cancerous human tissue from a variety of organs.

The official NIH resource for stem cell research.

Databases

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.

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

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 (rishi.mathura@nih.gov) with questions or comments.

 

Genetic & Genomic

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.
