Virtual Microscopy Database

The Virtual Microscopy Database (VMD) is a centralized repository of high-resolution, interactive "virtual microscopy" images available for enhancing education, research and scholarship.  This database allows educators and researchers without access to high quality histological glass slides or scanning and digitization equipment, or those in need of more examples of different tissues and organs, to obtain such images for use in their educational and research use.

Funding from the American Association for Anatomy and MBF Bioscience made the development and maintenance of this platform for donating and exchanging digital microcopy files possible.

Free VMD membership is available to faculty, staff or investigators with educational or research institutional affiliations.
