Thirst for Knowledge: Working with the Dead – Body Bequest at University of Otago

Please note, this has been cancelled due to COVID-19. We apologise for any inconvenience but community safety is paramount.


Have you ever been curious about donating your body to science?

Many people donate their bodies to science, but at the University of Otago things are done a bit differently. Ellie Stevens and Djuna Elkan are Department of Anatomy technicians who work closely with donated cadavers. This month, they will discuss the body bequest system, misconceptions about donating, current research, and the people who work with the dead.
