Virtual Microscopy Database (VMD)

Launched in 2017 and funded by AAA, the Virtual Microscopy Database (VMD) is a centralized repository where a community of anatomy and histology scholars and researchers can share a large selection of virtual tissue slides for enhancing education, research, and scholarship. 


The VMD is a free resource to members and nonmembers! As of November 2019, more than 1,100 VMD users hail from 84 different countries on six continents. Apply for your own VMD subscription.


The VMD is home to more than 3,500 virtual histology and pathology images in more than 20 collections! Interested donors may submit digital tissue slides for inclusion in the VMD.
