Biomedical and Basic Sciences Research

Curated resources for students, faculty, and staff engaged in basic sciences and biomedical sciences education and research

Basic Science at VCU

VCU School of Medicine houses the majority of basic science research.  On this site, you can learn about the dozens of masters and doctoral programs in the basic sciences at VCU.

The Office of Research and Innovation works to create an environment that enables investigators to: 1. effectively compete for research funding, 2. responsibly conduct research in compliance with mandated policies, and 3. broadly disseminate knowledge gained by discoveries made. This is also the home for all administrative resources for those seeking funding. 

The Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research provides longitudinal and cross-disciplinary networking opportunities, fosters a collaborative culture, and provides the infrastructure necessary to identify promising discoveries made in the laboratory and connect them with clinicians and clinical research opportunities. From bench to bedside, the CCTR provides resources to train researchers and assist basic scientists and clinicians. 



Welcome to the Biomedical and Basic Sciences Research Guide. Students, faculty, and staff who work in the basic sciences will find these resources particularly useful.  Use this page as a jumping-off point to locate journal articles, access model organism database, find training and professional development resources, and learn more about what the library and the Basic Sciences librarian can do for you.

If you are not finding the information you need, do not hesitate to contact the a Research and Edcuation Librarian. A librarian is available to you, and they can: 

  • Provide research consultations and assist with literature searches,
  • Assist with comprehensive literature searches strategies for qualifying exam and thesis preparation,
  • Assist with reference management software, especially EndNote,
  • And so much more!
