Immortality Institute conference presentation: Brian Wowk

Low temperature suspended animation without freezing is referred to as vitrification. This is a fascinating 26 minute video detailing a method of cryopreservation that prevents cellular damage from expanding ice crystals.

This process will be first utilised for preserving organs for long-term storage before transplantation, once early problems are worked out. Eventually animals will be successfully vitrified using this technique. When such animal vitrification and de-vitrification is routinely successful, humans will be next.
