Doctors, researchers, and scientists have long recognized the benefit of human tissue to further their research.
Kennedy's Disease research is no different. In response to this need, the Kennedy's Disease Association (KDA) and the University of Michigan Brain Bank are pleased to announce the creation of a Tissue Donation Program for individuals with Kennedy's Disease who wish to donate their tissue. This program is similar to an organ donation program, but is different because of the formalities required and the specific use for the tissue.
Since any donation decision affects others, we recommend that you discuss it with your family so that they will understand and support your decision. If you are interested in donating tissue for Kennedy's Disease research, please contact the Michigan Brain Bank directly to see if they are able to accept the donation. Michigan Brain Bank's contact information is below.
The KDA cannot endorse or recommend any pathology services.
