It's true but, don't worry ... they are there on purpose and no crimes have been committed.

Not many people know this but, The University of Texas at El Paso, has got it's very own cadaver lab. (What's a cadaver lab? Take a peek inside one here.) Students in certain degree plans learn much more working on or with real human bodies than by simply reading or watching videos. Hence the UTEP cadaver lab which, you can donate your body to after you die. Kinda creepy yeah but, you won't be using it anymore and it could help train someone who may later save countless lives or cure disease thanks to their education.

They don't just work on dead people at UTEP, live volunteers are also needed for certain studies. Some "volunteers" even get paid. If you would like more information on these programs, send an email to
