We will be attending the next meeting for The Society for Low Temperature Biology(SLTB). SLTB was founded in 1964 and became a Registered Charityin 2003 (Charity Commission for England & Wales No. 1099747) with the purpose of promoting research into the effects of low temperatures on all types of organisms and their constituent cells, tissues and organs. Such studies have applications in a diverse variety of scientific fields from biology and medicine to engineering. Research interests of members range from natural mechanisms of cold tolerance, cryopreservation of cells and tissues for medical, agricultural and conservation purposes, low temperature microscopy, through to the physics and physical chemistry of water and ice, and heat and mass transfer in biological systems. This wide range of scientific and technical backgrounds facilitates cross-fertilization of ideas at our meetings.
