Search Tips

The NIDCD Stem Cell Information web site uses to find pages that match your search terms.

  • By default, returns pages that include all of your search terms. There is no need to include "and" between terms. ignores common words and characters such as I, where, and how.
  • Choose keywords wisely. To focus results, select several descriptive, specific words. For example, type president's policy on stem cell funding rather than funding.
  • To find an exact phrase (including common words), enclose your search query in quotation marks. For example, type "bone marrow" rather than bone marrow.
  • Use a minus sign (-) in front of words you want to avoid. (Make sure there is a space before it!) To avoid pages referencing stromal cells, for example, type -stromal.
  • Use "or" to broaden results if your subject has multiple names. For example, type adult or nonembryonic.
