Why Choose Body Donation to Science?

Science Care donors have made countless contributions to medical research and education in areas such as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and orthopedics to name a few.

Why Donate?


Can I donate my body for medical research and education?

Nearly everyone will qualify for donation, and there is no upper age limit. By registering with Science Care, you can state your intent to donate your body to science for the opportunity to contribute to future medical advancements.

Do I have the option to be both an organ donor and a body donor for science?

You can register your intent for both organ donation and non-transplant donation. Science Care encourages life-saving organ donation prior to body donation to science. You will need to register for both programs separately and let your loved ones know of your wishes.
