A smile for camera in the Linnean lecture theatre
The Society’s Spring meeting proved to be a real gem.
Whilst rescheduling of the meeting meant that attendance was lower than normally expected,
it was generally agreed that the quality of the papers presented was particularly high and of real interest to all.
A few words from our chairman
There were two themes to the meeting – “Regenerative medicine & cryobiology” and “Innovations in cryopreservation”.
Below is the list of presentations, the abstracts are printed in the May newsletter .
Powerpoint presentations of some of the speakers are available in the members only section.
