The EPMBA is the result of a collaborative effort directed by Dr. Uta B. Schambra, East Tennessee State University, who also provided stained sections and annotations with the technical assistance by Barbara A. Connelly. Dr. Jean M. Lauder, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, reviewed the annotations. Dr. Glenn D. Rosen, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, together with Chris Pung and Stephanie Chin created the Microbrightfield and photomontage (mosaic) images. Dr. Robert W. Williams, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, with the help of Arthur Centeno aligned and adjusted the images in Adobe Photoshop to create the individual atlas sets, created this web and manage it. Dr. Jonathan Nissanov, director of the Laboratory of Bioimaging and Anatomical Informatics at Drexel University College of Medicine, together with Louise Bertrand, Carl Gustafson, and William Bug produced the 3D aligned volumetric data set of a horizontally sectioned GD 12 head, which can now be sectioned at arbitrary angles off the original tissue sectioning plane, using the NetOStat client-server atlasing system created at LBAI.
