Do you have questions about the Virtual Microscopy Database? Thinking about donating your collection?  The VMD administrators will be available for consultation concerning the VMD at this Spring’s Experimental Biology Meetings in San Diego April 21-April 25.  If you are attending the meeting and interested in meeting with us, just leave a message with a AAA staff member at the American Association of Anatomists lounge.

As you may know, the Virtual Microscopy Database was made possible via funding from the American Association of Anatomists.  Even though the VMD is available free of charge for all educators and researchers, you may want to consider joining the AAA for access to even more resources for anatomical sciences education and research.  AAA members can receive online access to three society journals, participate in Anatomy Connected – a member only online community for networking (The Digital Histology Interest Group operates through Anatomy Connected), access free webinars, apply for competitive grants and scholarships and access many additional anatomy related resources for education.  AAA is an organizational member of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB).  The AAA annual meeting at Experimental Biology (This year in San Diego April 21-25) includes numerous education and research related sessions and excellent networking opportunities. 

Check out the American Association of Anatomists website for information on joining AAA today.

VMD reveal at the Annual 2017 Experimental Biology Conference

Virtual Microscopy Database (VMD) was showcased at the American Association of Anatomists’ session titled: Sharing Resources for Integrated Education and Research – The Virtual Microscopy Database, on Sunday, April 23rd, 2017.

The session featured 3 speakers, the VMD administrators:

Dr. Michael Hortsch of the University of Michigan demonstrated the global demand for a large virtual microscopy slide collection.

Dr. Haviva Goldmand of Drexel University demonstrated how to utilize shared virtual slides to create innovative anatomical science resources in an integrated curriculum.

Dr. Lisa MJ Lee of the University of Colorado revealed VMD and demonstrated how to effectively navigate and use the VMD for individual needs.

The team emphasized that the VMD is only as good as its users donating and sharing their individual donations to make the database that much more rich and diverse.

Please join American Association of Anatomists (AAA) and its Digital Histology Interest Group (DHIG) to stay connected to the large network of colleagues in anatomical sciences education and histology experts!
