Body Donation to Science and Medical Research

Give Hope to Future Generations…

Thank you for visiting Science Care, the world’s largest accredited whole body donation program. We work with some of the world’s most prestigious and well-respected medical schools, research hospitals and medical device companies to help support the training of physicians and surgeons and to assist with the development of new medical products, procedures and treatments. When you decide to donate your body to science, you are helping to advance medicine for everyone.

Those who have given the gift of body donation through Science Care have contributed to the advancement of treatments for conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, ALS, arthritis and degenerative joint disease, spinal injuries, hip replacement surgery, infectious diseases, heart disease and much more. Without the assistance of human body donation after death, we would not have the medical advancements that we see today.

Body donation through Science Care is a no cost option for final arrangements. We invite you to check out our comparison guide if you would to see how body donation compares to other end of life options.
