The  clinical medical research aspect of Internet Medicine needs to be monitored,  to see what is on the horizon, as far as  impending products, or ideas that may become reality.  And, it is relatively simple to do so, if one has internet search abilities,  to look for medical research studies, and clinical trials that are occurring across the globe.

This website will show on this page websites that we have found engaging in projects relating to healthcare in their developing stage.  Some developments occur in the major labs, such as MIT Medi Labs, Stanford, Baylor, etc. but some very good projects are occurring in litttle known lab communities that bear attention as well.
We will try to help to show what is going on out there, and point you to the websites that need to be monitored to be totally aware of the new developments. We want everyone in the world to know about the fantastic research that is being done, that will improve both the costs and quality of healthcare.
Before beginning, it would benefit the reader if one basic concept was understood, to understand the true potential of Internet Medicine:

It is not only the discoveries through digital research that are being achieved, but the technology to REACH those discoveries that is being constantly and exponentially improved.

Open Source Collaboration Between Medical Research Labs on Horizon
To aid in communication between labs, to share technologies, programs, ideas, methods are currently being created that will enhance these possibilities of collaboration with robotics. most likely avenues and methods will increase to be used between medical labs in the world.


IBM Research Labs

Not only conduction ground-breaking research, but also has a powerful global network to institute changes for the better in healthcare systems. Their Internet Medicine research is profound, and widespread; early diagnosis of dementia, through voice recognition software; using supercomputers to understand function of cardiac cells, structuring big data and harnessing it to benefit healthcare,Here follows a video of current exciting research done at IBM, where plastic polymers act like antibiotics to kill bacteria:

MIT Computer Science/Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL)
MIT Media Lab

Started by digital guru, Nicolas Negroponte, author of well-known, respected, often-quoted Being Digital.  MIT Media Lab a big player in medical research and technology.

Mayo Clinic Research

-includes clinical trials listings

Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon: Medical Robotics

world leader in computer-assisted surgery,  more accurate and less invasive orthopaedic procedures, the first image-guided orthopedic surgery system in the US – HipNav,  navigation and visualization for cardiac ablation, image-guided prenatal cardiac interventions , epicardial procedures , cardiac surgery , ultrasound-guided percutaneous interventions and biopsies , and eye surgery .

Max Planck Institute for Informatics (Germany)

Currently working with bioinformatics and epigenetics – computer-aided cancer diagnosis…”With the help of computers, they trawl through the genomes of cancer patients in search for suspect structures, and develop fast and simple new tools for improving cancer diagnosis in hospitals”….

Institute for Advanced Computing

created to realize the full potential of the rapid advances in computing and information technologies, on the cutting edge of new developments for infomatics

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA)

Applying power of  some of most powerful computers in world to applications like  Big Data, for possible applications in Healthcare Industry, and Genomics

Personalized Medicine Coalition

Homesite of Personalized Medicine at University of Pittsburg; keeps track of genomic research.  “…High on the list of breakthroughs expected to transform medicine is personalized medicine – the use of new methods of molecular analysis to better manage a patient’s disease or predisposition to disease.  Personalized medicine is likely to change the way drugs are developed and medicine is prescribed.” (SOURCE)

Networking Wireless Sensors Lab for latest in medical research and information:

Harvard Biomedical Image Research

Radiology imaging research, of  magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS), magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalograpy (EEG), near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and diffuse optical tomography (DOT), Positron emission tomography (PET), electrophysiology, molecular imaging, and computational image analysis. .  World leader in biomedical imaging studies.

Non-Invasive Glucometer Research 
Optical Sensors to Measure Blook Pressure

Mednar  is ” a one-stop federated search engine designed for professional medical researchers. It enables users to quickly access information from a multitude of credible sources, including deep web content not indexed by popular search engines.”

“Mednar offers access to an array of databases that are simply not mined by other health search engines and features a dependable email alert service that enables users to keep up on the latest publications on the medical topics of their choice,” said AltSearchEngines reviewer Hope Leman. “Mednar is the Secretariat and gold medal winner of medical search at this point.”
