Donating for Medical Research and Education

“Medical research plays a vital role in the discovery of treatments and cures for heart disease and stroke. It has yielded the medical breakthroughs we now take for granted.” – Alice Jacobs

Against all odds, IIAM stayed-the-course and placed almost 700 organs for research, ~100 per month, since the onset of COVID-19.  Together with our network of recovery partners and researchers, we persevered in honoring the Donor Gift while simultaneously advancing medicine! 

Faced with the loss of a loved one, many families seek a positive outlet for their grief by donating organs for transplantation; often honoring the wishes of their loved one.. At times,  medical issues or the circumstances of the death limit donation for transplantation of certain organs.

IIAM’s services allow for additional opportunities to leave lasting legacies through donation for medical research. We work closely with prominent research entities throughout the world and provide a comforting option for families wishing to donate organs that are not suitable for transplantation.

Researchers today study 21st century global epidemics and are breaking new ground with the help of donated human organs and tissues. These gifts affect untold numbers of patients who may one day benefit from the medical advances that result from their use in ongoing studies.

How Donor Organs and Tissues Help Research

Researchers here in the United States and throughout the world need donated human organs and tissues. Through both traditional and advancing technologies, researchers are making breakthroughs in treatments and cures for many of humankind’s most devastating illnesses.
