Welcome to the Library's online research guide for Nobel Conference 56: Cancer in the Age of Biotechnology!
Librarians often talk about research as an adventure: open-ended, exploratory, surprising, frustrating, and full of blind alleys and interesting side trips. Medical and health-related research is no different, but also has its own complexities. For example, most of us are not oncologists and the average person lacks the expertise needed to understand and interpret scientific studies and research articles. In addition, the spread of misinformation online and through social media has serious consequences - especially when that information impacts our health and wellbeing.
In this guide, you will find resources that have been selected for their quality as reliable sources. In addition, you will find guidance on evaluating and critically assessing information you might find elsewhere (your local librarian can also help you determine the best resources for your research topic).
