The word cryobiology literally signifies the science of life at icy temperatures. In practice, this field comprises the study of any biological material or system (e.g., proteins, cells, tissues, and organs, insects, seeds or plant embryos) subjected to any temperature below their normal range (from moderate hypothermia or over-wintering conditions, down to deep cryogenic temperatures).
Plan ahead for CRYO2017, the 54th Annual Meeting of the Society for Cryobiology in China. The Board of Governors is happy to announce that next year’s joint meeting with several Chinese Societies including the Chinese Cryobiology Society, Chinese Blood Transfusion Association, Chinese Primate Center, and Chinese Biomedical Engineering Society will be held in Hefei, China on July 20 – 24, 2017.
About the Society for Cryobiology
The Society for Cryobiology was founded in 1964 to bring together those from the biological, medical and physical sciences who have a common interest in the effect of low temperatures on biological systems. The Society currently has approximately 300 members from around the world. The purpose of the Society is to promote scientific research in low temperature biology, to improve scientific understanding in this field, and to disseminate and apply this knowledge to the benefit of mankind. The Society requires of all its members the highest ethical and scientific standards in the performance of their professional activities.
