Very simply Cryobiology is “the study of the effects of freezing and low temperatures on living organisms” (25). In the future, Cryobiology may be a field of biotechnology that saves millions of lives as its various procedures and ventures may, on a small scale, destroy small skin lesions and benign tumors, and on a much greater scale, cure cancer, and bring those in suspended animation back to life (15). Cryobiology uses a less invasive approach than typical procedures in order to destroy unhealthy tissue, while preserving the healthy tissue that surrounds it. While Cryobiology seems to be a broad topic, it contains three major focuses: Cryosurgery, Cryonics and Cryopreservation.
