You can search the projects held in our database in two ways:

  1. Search our projects search:
    Click in the 'Search our projects' box under 'Search our projects', enter the term(s) you would like to search for and click on search projects. If you enter more than one term, for example 'cancer' and 'treatment', the results will identify all projects that contain the term 'cancer' and all the projects that contain the term 'treatment'. If you only want to find projects that contain both terms together, that is 'cancer treatment', enter both terms then tick the box next to the Search our projects search box.
  2. Browse all projects:
    For an overview of all projects held, click on 'Show all projects'. The results will appear in alphabetical order (by title). You may reorder by date last added by clicking on the button at the top of the page.
