The Society for Low Temperature Biology (SLTB) was due to hold their 2022 annual meeting this October in Ukraine to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Institute for Problems of Cryobiology and Cryomedicine. Due to the Russian invasion and ongoing war this is no longer possible.
For this reason the Society for Cryobiology and Society for Low Temperature Biology are combining forces for a joint meeting.
Although the reason for the joining of our meetings is tragic, we look forward to this collaboration which affords the opportunity to strengthen the bonds between our respective societies.
The Student Award & Travel Grants have been reopened until April 21, 2022, to allow students from the SLTB to participate. Additional student applications from the Society for Cryobiology will also be considered.
Please visit our Registration page to view the Standard and Late rates as well as the Virtual rates. We explain our cancellation policy and even provide a Virtual Registration discount for delegates from Low Lower-Middle Income Countries.
