The results of the Society for Cryobiology Board of Governors election are in. Thank you all for your participation in making the election a success. Please join Erik Woods - President Elect - in congratulating our newest members of the Board, Tiantian Zhang, Serean Adams and Adam Higgins. We look forward to their service. Because Erik Woods was elected as President-Elect, his position on the Board as Governor-at-Large in the Class of 2013 needed to be filled again. This was done by James Benson, who had the fourth highest number of votes in the last elections. Have a look at the present composition of the Board of Governors.
