Can I donate my body to science?
Pursuant to the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act, organ donations or gifts of the entire body for medical research made by the decedent must be honored by the survivors. However, if the gift was made by means of the will rather than through an Organ Donor Card, it may be impossible to respect the request since organ donations must take place within a few hours of death.
It is important to express your wish to have your organs donated to medical research to the executor/executrix of your estate.
