Can I be both an organ donor and donate my body to research?

You can also say yes to organ donation, even if you have donated your body to research through a testament. When a person dies, it will first be considered if organs can be donated and used to save another persons life. If organ donation is not applicable (organ donation is only possible in 0,4-0,5% of all deaths) the body will be used in research. It is not possible to combine organ donation and research due to the embalming process carried out after organ donation.
