ScienceSlides Online

ScienceSlides Online is a library of 3,000+ high quality slides in biomedical fields that can be used for lectures, presentations, and publications. Categories include Biochemistry, Biology, CommonShapes, Methods, Molecular Pathology, Pharmacology, and Signaling. Access is available via the MCW network.

The subscription license permits MCW users to edit the slides in PowerPoint for specific needs. See the ScienceSlides Online license agreement FAQ below for important compliance information. The FAQ is also available on the ScienceSlides Online site.

Slides can be browsed by category, tag (keyword), title, or last modified. A search option is also available to search by tag. Click on a slide to go to the page with more information about the slide and a download link. Each download consists of a PowerPoint slide and a file with the license information. 

Downloaded PowerPoint slides are in vector graphics and in PPT or PPTX format, independent of Windows or iOS operating systems. The illustrations have numerous individual components to them, which makes customization very easy.

The vendor recommends using a desktop or laptop computer to download and modify the slides since the vendor hasn't tested the resource on mobile devices or tablets with available read-only Apps.

There should be Welcome MCW branding at the top right of the ScienceSlides Online page. It is not necessary to log in or create an account to access the subscription. Please contact us if you experience any difficulties accessing the resource.
