Which would you donate your body to, a University for Medical & Scientific Research or to the UTS Body Farm?

By Scarlet . Created on 05 Sep, 2019
Have you ever considered donating your body to a University for Medical & Scientific Research - donated remains are for a 4 year period after which the donor is cremated & the ashes scattered at the University memorial or returned to the family. ****************** Donating your remains to the UTS Forensic Taphonomy Research Facility helps researchers develop new & improved methods to assist police & emergency sevices in searching for, locating, recovering & identifying victims of crime or disaster, this may inlcude using a donors' remains in replicating crime scenes - they have permanent retention of all remains. The UTS Body Farm is the only one of it's kind in Australia.

Research for me. Because of VRE infection I can't donate organs, but I have survived many body part failures and invasive medical procedures, so this may be of use to researchers in order to help others.

I believe that it would be very beneficial for researchers in your instance Hans with VRE. They would be very interested in finding out the cause and how to prevent this. Take care and enjoy your day. B.

The cause is known. My large intestine ruptured, and my abdomen was open for a VERY long time while the surgeons cleaned everything out.

The best hope for VRE at present is research being done with monotreme (echidna and platypus) milk.

I would donate my viable organs to people needing transplants, the rest can go to science (though I've looked into it, and I live too far away from major universities at the moment - there's a limit, they've gotta be able to get your organs ASAP). If there's no location limit, Body Farm can have me.

g you have been a busy little beaver for which I thank you. I must say I did laugh at this - I know it is a sensitive subject so sorry about that. I too have watched many medical shows that show what they do and now I am thinking perhaps Forensic is the best. Thanks for the enlightenment. B.

Yes I would donate my body to science. It is only a shell that houses your soul. The use that could be provided for science and students would be remarkable. I want to be cremated anyway so the end result would be a positive one.

I'm pretty open to all options except burial. My son has some very complex medical.conditions so I would consider donating his body to scientific study to try and get some answers
