Donate Your Body to Medical Science


NIU Department of Biological Sciences has maintained its own body donor program since 1990. Bodies obtained through this program are used to teach physical therapists and medical pre-professionals. Currently we are experiencing a severe shortage of bodies and would like to encourage those interested in donating the bodies to medical science to consider donating to NIU.

Northern Illinois University cannot be responsible for transportation of bodies. This cost must be paid out of the donor's estate.

For more information, see Donating Your Body to Medical Science (brochure and form) or call (815) 753-0437.
