    (Section scheduled to be repealed on December 31, 2027)
    Sec. 25. Registry of contributed cadavers and institutions of medical, mortuary, or other sciences.
    (a) An institution of medical, mortuary, or other sciences is eligible to receive a contributed cadaver under Section 15 of this Act if it meets the qualifications determined to be appropriate by the Department by rule and registers with the Department. Under no circumstances is the harvesting and sale of body parts allowed, including after any medical, mortuary, or other sciences research has concluded. Qualified medical science institutions, at a minimum, must be either:
        (1) a medical college or school, or other institution
of higher science education or school of mortuary science, public or private;
        (2) a hospital; or
        (3) a not-for-profit corporation under Section
501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code registered under the Charitable Trust Act.
    (b) The Department shall maintain a registry of:
        (1) cadavers that have been contributed to qualified
medical science institutions of Section 15; and
        (2) institutions qualifying as institutions of
medical, mortuary, or other sciences eligible to receive donations under this Act.
    The Department shall update the registry with any new information within 24 hours of receiving the information.
    (c) Each qualified medical science institution shall submit its request for cadavers in State custody. The Department shall designate the next institution to receive a cadaver when requested by a State facility.
    (d) If the number of cadavers is insufficient for the use of the relevant institutions, the Department shall determine which institution shall receive them, taking into account the relative proportion of the numbers of students at each institution.
