For clinical and biomedical research topics, PubMed is a good place to start. There are also specialized Internet resources that often reference the published literature, please see the Organizations and Other Resources section.
PubMed® comprises more than 30 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. PubMed was developed and is maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), at the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM).
Results of searches on this page are limited to specific clinical research areas, results are returned in three columns: Clinical Study Categories, Systematic Reviews, and Medical Genetics. For comprehensive searches, use PubMed directly.
Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings. Delivering a comprehensive overview of the world's research output in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities, Scopus features smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.
By integrating the classic principles of human genetics with modern molecular genetics, this medical reference book utilizes a variety of learning tools to help with understanding a wide range of genetic disorders.
Summarizes basic theories, concepts, research areas, and the history of medical genetics, providing a contextual framework for integrating genetics into medical practice. Clinically oriented information is supported by full-color images and expanded sections on the foundations of genetic analytics, next generation sequencing, and therapeutics.
Genomic information is impacting clinical decision-making and leading to more personalization of health care. The book pinpoints the challenges, barriers, and solutions that have been brought forward to enable translation of genome based technologies into health care.
Presents a comprehensive volume for primary care providers. Provides succinct commentary and key learning points that will assist providers with their local needs for the implementation of genomic and personalized medicine.
Addresses general methods and approaches to genetic counseling, genetic diagnostics, treatment pathways, and drug discovery. Explore the clinical implementation of genomic technologies, analytics, and therapeutics, with special attention paid to developing technologies, common challenges, patient care, and ethical and legal aspects.
Timely ethical issues arising in the genetics clinic and laboratory, including prenatal and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis, assisted reproductive technologies, incidental findings in genetic testing, gene patenting, testing children for adult onset disorders, and direct to consumer testing.
Guidance to accurately diagnose multiple malformation syndromes of environmental and genetic etiology, as well as recognizable disorders of unknown cause. Helps establish prognoses, and provide appropriate management and genetic counseling.

HGMD® represents an attempt to collate all known (published) gene lesions responsible for human inherited disease and is maintained in Cardiff University. Free registration with academic e-mail is required to access the public version, a more frequently updated commercial version (not subscribed to by the Library) is also available.
Provided through IUPUI Office of the Vice Chancellor of Research. Comprehensive world-wide database of funding opportunities, field experts, and collaborators. Save your search and receive alerts. First-time users need to Access Pivot-RP using Institution's Credentials (Shibboleth) - search for "Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis" in the drop-down menu. You will then be prompted to create a Pivot-RP account using your university email address
You can apply for internal funding or external funding. Be aware that some external agencies set a limit on the number of proposals or pre-proposals an institution may submit. In those cases, you must follow IU’s limited submission process before applying.
Some funding agencies restrict the number of proposals an institution may submit to a particular funding program. These opportunities are referred to as limited submissions. Some programs are limited by institution (i.e., X proposals allowed for the entire university), some by campus, some by school.
For new grant writers and seasoned health researchers, educators, and clinicians alike, this text illuminates the process of writing a persuasive request for funding from start to finish. Includes key information about grant mechanisms and a fresh focus for foundation and corporate grants.
