Bangkok Anatomy Lab Inundated With Body Donors Following Example Of Revered Monk Luang Phor Khoon
BANGKOK, THAILAND - JULY 07: Students used iPads and textbooks for reference as they dissect cadavers at the Anatomy Lab of Chulalongkorn University on July 7, 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand. Following the death of revered monk Luang Phor Khoon, many Thai people have begun following his example and donating their bodies to science upon their death. This has led to a welcome influx of cadavers used for training and research purposes, including a doubling of bodies available at the Department of Anatomy of Chulalongkorn University.
