The Cushing/Whitney Medical Library has recently licensed Pharmaprojects from Informa PLC.  Pharmaprojects lets researchers track the progress of drugs from bench to patient by exploring drug development by global and country development status, and therapeutic class status.

This database covers the progress of new drug candidates as they enter commercial pharmaceutical research and development programs, and tracks their progress from early preclinical development right up to market launch, or to discontinuation if a drug fails at any stage.

7 December 2016 - 12:28pm by Andy Hickner

You've probably noticed the Library website has a new look. 
We switched to a YaleSites theme, meaning that our website's look and feel will be more consistent with Yale University-wide branding.  
We also implemented some changes to our site's navigation.  These include: 
  1. Renaming the “Research Help” the sub-menu as “Ask a Librarian”
  2. “Library Technology” links, including “Mobile Device Applications,” can now be found under the “Services” sub-menu.
