Medicine has come pretty far over the centuries, but at SGU we strongly believe medical research is the key to unlocking even better outcomes in the future. Since it can be hard to keep up with the latest studies by watching the news alone, try following these blogs to make sure you never miss a thing.
53. THE JAMA NETWORK
Home of the Journal of the American Medical Association and a number of other publications, The JAMA Network is a research-lover’s dream. Since the information is pulled straight from the medical journals, this resource is best for those already comfortable with scientific language.
54. HOWARD HUGHES MEDICAL INSTITUTE NEWS
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute supports research efforts in cell biology, genetics, immunology, neuroscience and structural biology. Published studies are highlighted on the news blog and presented in a way that’s easy to digest.
55. ON MEDICINE
BioMed Central publishes a number of blogs, but On Medicine is the place to go for those interested specifically in medical research. In addition to straight study coverage, this blog also delves into quality control issues that sometimes occur in medical research and points out important ethical considerations.
56. NCCIH RESEARCH BLOG
The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) uses this blog to highlight the latest research about complementary health strategies, such as using music in a treatment plan. Each post begins with a brief biography about the author to highlight their credentials and some even share their contact information should readers have any questions.
57. MEDICAL XPRESS
This website churns out health news and research reports consistently throughout the day, meaning there’s a lot to read. The options to sort headlines by recency or popularity are nice for those who don’t know exactly where to start.
58. ASSOCIATION OF MEDICAL RESEARCH CHARITIES BLOG
Not everyone interested in learning about the latest medical research is familiar with the clinical language used in medical journals. The Association of Medical Research Charities’ Blog is a good choice for these folks because it explains results in clear language. There’s also a fair amount about what charities can do to advance research.
