A community-driven effort

MicroscopyDB is a community-driven effort, led by the Founding Members with contributions from the Partners listed below. It emerged following international stakeholder discussions held during the 2022 European Light Microscopy Initiative (ELMI) meeting. Other communities and interested parties are invited to connect and get involved as contributors to the database content and/or as partners displaying content.



These Partners have executed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to be able to share and display the content from the MicroscopyDB on their community websites. If your website serves a community of microscopy users/imaging scientists and you would like the ability to display any of the database content on your community website please review our MOU and contact us at contact@microscopydb.io.

Founding Members

MicroscopyDB was established in 2022 by the efforts of an initial steering committee of founding microscopy organizations listed below. The pilot was coordinated by BioImaging North America through an award from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
