Many U.S. medical schools are seeing a surge in the number of people leaving their bodies to science. The increase has helped medical students and researchers because they dissect cadavers in anatomy class or use them to practice surgical techniques and test new devices and procedures. “The uses that we can bring to these very precious gifts have really escalated,” says John E. Tomaszewski, MD, professor and chair of the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences.
