MEDICINE, RESEARCH & EXPERIMENTAL

Medicine, Research & Experimental includes resources describing general medical research with a particular emphasis on extremely novel techniques and clinical interventions in a broad range of medical specializations and applications, including vaccine development, tissue replacement, immunotherapies, and other experimental therapeutic strategies. Resources in this category reflect clinical interventions that are in early stages of development, using in vitro or animal models, and small-scale clinical trials.

ENDOCRINOLOGY & METABOLISM

Endocrinology & Metabolism includes resources focused on endocrine glands; the regulation of cell, organ, and system function by the action of secreted hormones; the generation and chemical/biological properties of these substances; and the pathogenesis and treatment of disorders associated with either source or target organs. Specific areas covered include neuroendocrinology, reproductive endocrinology, pancreatic hormones and diabetes, regulation of bone formation and loss, and control of growth.

EMERGENCY MEDICINE
