cryobiology

The study of the effects of low temperatures on cells, tissues and organisms, including methods of using cold so as virtually to halt the processes of ageing and deterioration in living structures without causing serious damage. See also CRYOPRESERVATION.

cryobiology

the study of the effects of low temperatures on biological materials. Some tissues and cells remain viable when frozen and this makes it possible to preserve them for future use, particularly in the field of medicine e.g. sperm and tissue for grafting.

Cryobiologists at 21st Century Medicine have recently made significant progress in kidney cryopreservation by making new refinements in their cryopreservation protocols.
To avoid this damage, cryobiologists usually cool their samples slowly so that water has enough time to come out of cells before it freezes.
Even some of the cryobiologists trying to deep-freeze single cells and whole organs think that cryonics is moving too fast.
