UCLA to reopen donated body program
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted Nov. 14, 2005
The University of California, Los Angeles, is set to start operating its willed body program again, following a Los Angeles County Superior Court ruling.
The program was shut down in 2004 under allegations of the illegal sale of human body parts and accusations of improper disposal of donated bodies.
The program will operate under court supervision for 18 months. Due to construction of a new facility, the program is not expected to be excepting body donations until early 2006.
