The gift of body donation
Contribute to the future of medical science and make a difference in the lives of others. An anatomical donation, or donating your body to medicine after you pass away, is one way of making a lasting difference.
By making an anatomical donation, you make it possible for medical researchers and educators to advance medical science and to contribute to finding cures and treatments for diseases such as breast cancer, muscular dystrophy, neurological disorders and more. Donating your body to the School of Medicine will also assist in educating future physicians on the complexity of the human anatomy. If it is your wish to have a lasting legacy on medical research, then we encourage you to explore our anatomical donation program.
The anatomical donation process of donating your body to medical science is of no cost to you or your family and offers free cremation services. The doctors at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine understand this is an important decision. We assure you that our doctors and students will ensure the dignity and respect of our donors and their families.
