Why people leave their bodies to medical research and what happens
An article by David Derbyshire a freelance science journalist based in Winchester, UK published in The Guardian newspaper today, explores why people leave their bodies to medical research – and what happens.
Helping find answers to hereditary diseases, training surgeons or wanting to leave an educational legacy are the reasons. But what sort of people donate bodies to science?
At the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience, UCC, FLAME laboratory, we are very grateful to those who are generous enough to donate their bodies for the purpose of medical science and education.
