Paris Descartes university ‘sold rotting corpses for €900 each’ | World | The Times
A leading medical institution in Paris is facing a criminal action for trading in bodies and body parts donated for research for more than a decade.
The Centre for Body Donations at Paris Descartes university has admitted mistreating thousands of cadavers, keeping them in rat-infested and overheated rooms.
A doctors’ union alleges that some bodies have been sold to private companies for inappropriate uses such as car crash tests. It charges €900 for a body and €400 for a limb.
