This London Futurists talk by João Pedro de Magalhães covers the latest developments in both the theory and practice of cryopreservation – the low temperature preservation of biological material.
Important potential applications of cryopreservation include:
- in biobanking (and therefore in regenerative medicine)
- in cryonics - the low-temperature preservation of deceased human bodies, with the view to eventual reanimation when science has progressed sufficiently to cure whatever condition was the cause of death.
