Dr. Rafael Matesanz and Cryobiomed


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”.
