Abstract

The Society for Low Temperature Biology (SLTB) was founded in 1964 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 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-fertilisation of ideas at our meetings and provides a unique occasion for such scientists and clinicians to meet. The SL TB holds one main meeting each year and the scientific programme includes symposia on topical subjects together with free communications on any aspect of low temperature biology.
