TextMed is a research project in natural language processing and statistical analysis being led by Prof. Steven Skiena in the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University.

TextMed is a search engine for medical entities: diseases, drugs, chemicals, organs and organisms.TextMed aims to identify relationships between these medical entities.TextMed uses natural language processing techniques to track medical entity references from the scientific literature, and a variety of statistical techniques to analyze the relationships between them. TextMed presents our analysis of roughly 15 million Medline/PubMed medical abstracts, including the latest abstracts analyzed as they arrive each day.

TextMed is an academic research project, not a commercial operation. TextMed technology is available for licensing through the Research Foundation at Stony Brook University.
