Sends out forms to individuals who wish to donate their bodies. Only an entire body is accepted (must be an intact body, not parts). Bodies are kept up to 2 years and are used for educational purposes, not research. Advance registration is required. Acceptance of a donor body at time of death is based on physical condition. Note: Body donation form is not available on-line. You must call, write, or email to request form

After use, body is cremated at university expense. Ashes will be sent back to the family if requested.

Inquiries about the donation of corneas may be directed to the Lion's Eye Bank of Wisconsin, at (608) 233-2354 or http://lebw.org/
