Cryobiomed had the opportunity to spend some time with Dr. Rafael Matesanz, the Organización Nacional de Trasplantes de España founder, and more important people in Madrid as Dr. Beatriz Domínguez, the new ONT director, or Federico Mayor Zaragoza, the UNESCO general director (-1987/1999-).
In this meeting organized by Fundación Independiente, we could ask Dr. Matesanz his opinion about our cryopreservation project. His words are giving us strength to continue investigating harder. Also, our scientific investigator, Dr. Begoña Galocha, had the opportunity to participate in this meeting.
Dr. Matesanz emphasized the innovation as added value of the ONT, and Cryobiomed can answer to this important need, because, as he said: “Every day there are more people who need to be transplanted to continue living”.

CRYO2018 is the 55th annual meeting of the Society for Cryobiology, a nonprofit society devoted to dissemination of research in the field of cryobiology the science of life at low and freezing temperatures. Our annual meeting is the world’s most diverse gathering of cryobiology professionals from around the globe, covering the full spectrum of this multidisciplinary field including the latest research on human, animal, and plant cryobiology. The theme of the 2018 meeting is Scientific Challenges of Cryobiology. What are the largest challenges facing cryobiology today and where to from here?
Spain hosted the first International Longevity and Cryopreservation Summit during May 26-28, 2017. Fundacion VidaPlus was the main organizer of this world congress, with the help of other leading associations and organizations working on longevity, indefinite lifespans, cryopreservation, and other biomedical areas. So, the congress had various purposes, among others:
- To give Madrid and Spain a role as a benchmark in this field. Thanks to the CSIC (Higher Council for Scientific Research), one of the most prestigious scientific institutions in Europe, we want to promote our most renowned scientists worldwide in the field of Longevity (María Blasco, Juan Carlos Izpisúa, Javier Cabo …) that, if possible, join Ramón y Cajal and Severo Ochoa as Nobel Laureates in Medicine. Madrid is the longest-lived world region, Spain is already a leader in organ donation worldwide, and according to The Lancet has one of the best health systems in the world.
- Generate and invigorate the research and business ecosystem in the field of Longevity. Spain has some companies dedicated to this field with an international quality and we are proud that many of them accompanied us as partners and sponsors in the congress: LifeLenght in the measurement of Telomeres, TellMeGen with genetic sequencing, FitnessRevolutionary with global health education or NeoLife as a model of preventive and proactive medicine.
