(1) The following persons or entities may become donees of anatomical gifts of bodies or parts of them for the purposes stated:
(a) Any procurement organization or accredited medical or dental school, college, or university for education, research, therapy, or transplantation.
(b) Any individual specified by name for therapy or transplantation needed by him or her.
(c) The anatomical board or a nontransplant anatomical donation organization, as defined in s. 406.49, for donation of the whole body for medical or dental education or research.
