What does the Church teach about donating one's body to science?

My wife and I both want to donate our bodies to science...What are the requirements of The Catholic Church...in doing so.
Does the body have to be blessed before the body is turned over to science, as the remainder of body parts not used will be creamated and returned to the family.
