Bethany Conkel Helps Raise Awareness for Neonatal Donation.
IIAM has established a Neonatal Donor Program to provide neonatal organs and tissues for medical research, education and development. These donors range in age from 5 months gestation to 1 month old, many whom have terminal diagnoses, and are able to be considered for organ/tissue donation for transplant and/or medical research upon death from natural causes. IIAM's Neonatal Donor Program offers this unique service to the research community and to families of babies with terminal diagnoses. In addition to neonatal tissue, IIAM continues to provide non-transplantable organs/tissues from organ transplant donors where authorization for research use has been granted.
