This week, the third panel discussion or Town Talk  focuses on the technological developments, uses, and potential of cryopreservation.

A second chance at life.  That is an innately human desire that’s been held long before the first person, Dr. James Bedford, was successfully frozen in January 1967. Reanimation through cryonics isn’t possible and doesn’t look to be possible at this point, but the science of cryogenics and cryopreservation is already providing new life through fertility treatments, preserving plant and animal species through conservation, and promoting health and wellness through techniques that allow cell therapy to work for patients suffering from ailments ranging from cancer to spinal cord injuries to neurological disorders.
