MedCure is the leading non-transplant tissue bank devoted to compassionate, ethical services that connect whole-body donors to medical research and education while providing innovation and opportunity for scientific medical advancements. MedCure is fully accredited through the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB), the only U.S. national tissue banking organization.
Throughout history, human cadavers have provided the best model for medical education and research. Body donation is also important for teaching and learning anatomy, studying the pathology of diseases and development and practice of new innovative, minimally invasive surgical procedures. MedCure assists donors and their families in making body donation arrangements and matching the body donation with current medical research and educational studies.
MedCure was founded in 2005 and our main office is located in Portland, Oregon. Additional locations are in Orlando, Florida; New England; Henderson, Nevada; and St. Louis, Missouri. Nevada, New England and Oregon locations are also Surgical Training Centers.
From the beginning, MedCure has established itself as a trusted leader in providing ethical services to donors and their families and medical science.
