Histology at the University of Michigan

Dear Michigan Histology Website Users,

The conversion of the Michigan Histology website to a Flash-independent viewer has now been completed and you should be able to use any Internet browser to open and view the virtual slides. Users will see only one link for each virtual slide, no longer two (Webscope and Imagescope). All sample and practice question pictures have been converted to still images. The new slide viewer will also work on computer tablets and smartphones. Please let us know about any problems with the new viewer and the revised pages, specifically missing or incorrect links.

Special thanks for their great work goes to the University of Michigan HITS teams as they did most of the transformation work. Specially I would like to mention Naveen Jain, Michael Blake, Brian Simko, Tara Manwaring, and Dima Tawakkol.

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.
