CRYO-CONSERVATION | LIVER CELL PRESERVATION
Join us this January for the inaugural webinar in the Society for Cryobiology's new webinar series. Each webinar pairs a senior scientist alongside an exciting young researcher to discuss a wide variety of topics and themes.

In today's webinar Dr. Nucharin Songsasen will discuss the state-of-the-art, applications, and challenges of gamete and reproductive tissue cryopreservation in endangered species conservation.

This will be followed by a presentation by Iqra Azam on the recent success in high-subzero storage of livers. It is well known that longer storage durations achieved in liquid nitrogen require high concentrations of toxic and mechanically disrupting cryoprotectants. While there has been some work on cryobiologically relevant hepatocyte biophysics, here I show how the unique cell anatomy of hepatocytes affects basic assumptions of modelling in cryobiology. Moreover, I show how these structures are affected in-situ using 4D microscopy techniques. Finally, I present preliminary data on preventing osmotic damage during CPA equilibration.
