Scientific Resources

  • The Stem Cell Network – A consortium of Canadian Centers of Excellence, funded by the Government of Canada, that focuses on translational stem cell research. www.stemcellnetwork.ca
  • PubMed.gov – A NLM (U.S. National Library of Medicine)  website for searching scientific and medical journals. You can enter Boolean search terms such as “stem cells AND diabetes” to find information on the latest published research.  Unlike ClinicalTrials.gov (above), this site will include experimental research as long as it’s been published www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/

Medical Resources

  • Canadian Cancer Society – www.cancer.ca
  • Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) – jama.ama-assn.org
  • Cancer Research – cancerres.aacrjournals.org

  • ClinicalTrials.gov – A NIH (U.S. National Institutes of Health) website detailing all the clinical trials approved in the United States.  Clinical trials represent the final step in government regulations before a new or experimental drug is approved for public use, so this site will allow you to find more mature and conservative ‘late stage’ research and development.  The following link will bring you to search results dealing specifically with cord blood – https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?term=cord+blood&Search=Search
