Welcome to the new NIF

Continue to search results

The interface has been completely re-designed to facilitate your daily research. With a single search your query is expanded to include synonyms, variants and logical inferences - saving you time and providing enhanced results. Results are drawn from more than 180 federated databases, PubMed and open access literature, funding opportunities and the NIF Registry of biomedical resources. For a brief overview of the new NIF please watch the video below.
