Extreme Cryo 2020

“Survival of the Frozen: An Avalanche of Ideas in Cool Biomedical Research”

We welcome you to the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada for the 18th (almost) annual Extreme Cryo Symposium on January 31 and February 1, 2020. The purpose of Extreme Cryo is to promote interdisciplinary discussion and collaboration among research groups interested in the broad area of biopreservation, an enabling technology for the use of cells, tissues, and organs in clinical transplantation and regenerative medicine and in many biotechnologies. Methods to preserve biological materials include the use of moderately low temperatures (hypothermic storage), very low temperatures (cryopreservation), vitrification (ice-free cryopreservation), desiccation, and normothermic culture, maintenance, repair, and conditioning. This year’s topic “Survival of the Frozen: An Avalanche of Ideas in Cool Biomedical Research” envisions bringing together researchers in biopreservation of a vast range of cells, tissues, and organs, and related areas for broad interdisciplinary conversations. The main event at Extreme Cryo will be presentations by participants (students, technicians, researchers, clinicians, and scientists) sharing their research at any stage (planned, ongoing, or finished) with lots of time for discussion after each presentation.

There is no charge for attendees but registration is necessary. The registration and abstract submission deadline is December 20, 2019. More information on Extreme Cryo 2020 including information on registration and abstract submission can be found on the website
