Welcome to the Virtual Microscopy Database
We are now accepting new VMD users by application.
Please note that an affiliation with a research or educational institution is a requirement for becoming a VMD user or donor. The purpose of the VMD is to support the creation and expansion of local educational infrastructures and it is not intended for general student use. Therefore, only educators and researchers will be accepted as subscribers. This database is a work in progress and over time more and more images will become available.
With the advent and the proliferation of virtual microscopy in histology and pathology education and research, VMD was created as a centralized repository where the community of scholars and researchers can share a large selection of virtual tissue slides for enhancing education, research, and scholarship.
The VMD would not be possible without its users willing to donate and share their collection of virtual slides, the Innovation Program from the American Association of Anatomists (AAA) and members of the Digital Histology Interest Group.
If you would like to access the VMD collections, become a VMD subscriber today! Free VMD membership is available to faculty, staff or investigators with educational or research institutional affiliations.
