Histology at the University of Michigan

Dear Michigan Histology Website Users,

The Department of Cell & Developmental Biology at the University of Michigan Medical School provides this digital microscopy resource for the study of cells, tissues and organs.  A full list of virtual slides and a full list of virtual EM micrographs are also available. Special thanks for maintaining, upgrading, and supporting this resource goes to the University of Michigan HITS teams. Specially I would like to mention Naveen Jain, Michael Blake, Brian Simko, Tara Manwaring, and Dima Tawakkol.

Hortsch; "The Michigan Histology Website as an Example of a Free Anatomical Resource Serving Learners and Educators Worldwide." Anat. Sci. Educ. Vol, 16 (3), 363-71, 2023.
