culturing of cells and tissues;
response of biological objects to low temperature;
mechanisms of natural cold resistance of living systems and recovery after cold exposure;
cold adaptation in animals and plants;

experimental and clinical transplantation;
cryobiological and cryomedical devices;
low temperature banks and depositories.
The conference will be held online.
To participate at the conference, please register at the conference website: coldbiomed.cryo.org.ua before April 26, 2021 and send the abstracts to the organizing committee (firstname.lastname@example.org). The abstract will be published in the Abstract book.
