International Cancer Research Portfolio 

This is a powerful new tool provides instant access to information about current cancer research projects that are supported by cancer funding organizations in the United States and the United Kingdom. The International Cancer Research Portfolio (ICRP) is a public database that holds nearly 13,000 records of current cancer research awards. This site is a central, searchable database, which allows visitors to find information about actively funded research. The database has a simple and useful keyword-based search engine. Search results provide clear, concise information on the titles, principle investigators, institutions, funding organizations and award codes of all funded research projects. Title links take the visitor to detailed abstracts of each project.

NCBI Databases

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) maintains a number of critical biotechnology databases, including PubMed (see below) that can be accessed by the public. Most of these databases are of interest to the specialist only, but PubMed is key to searching for citations on clinical research.  Twenty one NCBI databases can be accessed through the following link:


PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine, provides access to over 12 million MEDLINE citations back to the mid-1960's and additional life science journals. PubMed includes links to many sites providing full text articles and other related resources. This is undoubtedly a key resource for any kind of systematic investigation of the research literature on medical topics. 

If you are serious about using PubMed to conduct your own searches, it might be helpful for you to go through the PubMed Tutorial found at: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/bsd/pubmed_tutorial/m1001.html

You can launch your PubMed search from here. The drop-down menu gives you access to 16 other NCBI databases besides PubMed..
