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.
The objectives of the Society are fulfilled in two primary ways. First, the Society organizes an annual scientific meeting dedicated to all aspects of low-temperature biology. This international meeting offers opportunities for presentation and discussion of the most up-to-date research in cryobiology as well as reviewing specific aspects through symposia and workshops. Second, the Society publishes a journal, Cryobiology, which is the foremost scientific publication in this area, with approximately 60 refereed contributions published each year. Members are also kept informed of news and forthcoming meetings through the Society's newsletters.
