The Institute of Gender in Medicine at Charité University in Berlin, Germany, has just unveiled its newest project – and it has been designed to help professionals interested in research on gender and sex-specific medicine. The project has been developed by Prof. Vera Regitz-Zagrosek and Dr. Sabine Oertelt-Prigione.
GenderMedDB is a collection of medical literature, incorporating sex and/or gender-specific research. It is organized in disciplines and diseases and offers information about the type of research performed, the subject analyzed, the number of participants in the studies and much more. It also gives you the opportunity to communicate with other researchers, clinicians and scholars through an open forum. As it is directly connected to PubMed, relevant articles are continuously incorporated and you will be offered a continuously growing body of knowledge to draw from. More than 40.000 articles have been screened so far and more than 11.000 are included in GenderMedDB.
The database has a very intuitive and user-friendly structure and can be accessed at gendermeddb.charite.de . Initial registration is required, but use is completely free to all members.
