How body donation works with Science Care
- If you have decided body donation to science is an option for you, we encourage you to join the Science Care online donor registry and let your loved ones know about your wishes.
- If you or your loved one is under hospice or palliative care, or has been diagnosed as terminally ill, we encourage you to get pre-screened for guaranteed acceptance into the Science Care HOPE® Program: call (800) 417-3747 or fill out this pre-enrollment form.
Most people meet the criteria for body donation to science, including those with cancer, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and many other chronic conditions. The most common rule-out for donation is a contagious disease. It is important we protect the safety of our medical researchers and educators.
