Is the Registry used for whole body donation?

No. The Registry is for the gift of organs, tissues, and eyes. If your organs are not good enough for transplant, they can be used for research and medical education. Under Gift Specifications, be sure to select "Transplant, Therapy, Research, Education." This is not the same as whole body donation. If you choose to give your whole body for research and education, you must make plans for this in advance of your death with the institute of your choice. Click to learn more. Note: If you choose to consent to whole body donation, you may not be able to donate your organs or tissues for transplant.
