Forensic Research Outdoor Station
Willed Body Program
FROST and the associated Forensic Anthropology Research Laboratory rely on a willed body program for donations of human remains for all research and education purposes. Our willed body program is highly ethical and promises dignified, respectful treatment of all donors. We accept donations from the donors themselves and from legal next-of-kin—we do not accept unclaimed or unidentified persons. Body donations to our program are “forever donations,” meaning the remains are curated permanently at NMU.
FROST provides experiential learning for students who have an interest in the forensic sciences. After students complete prerequisite courses and training, they are eligible to assist with taphonomy research in the outdoor facility, casework and analysis in the laboratory, and involvement in forensic casework.
