ON THE COVER: Medical students at the Federal University of Health Sciences of Porto Alegre, in Porto Alegre, Brazil, are viewed from the cadaver's perspective, as they interact during a session in the anatomy laboratory. In this issue of ASE, Dr. Andréa Rocha and her co-authors discuss the launch of the university's Body Donation Program for Education and Research in Anatomy which has not only led to an increase in the number of bodies donated, but also in the number of individuals signing up to donate their bodies after death. Included in this report is a discussion of the factors that have led to this success. Photograph by Mr. Luciano A.J. Valério.
