Introducing Cryobios

A Cryobio is a recently coined term referring to text provided by public members for publication before they are cryopreserved. These differ from the biographies of still-living members although they may be constructed from the text of a regular biography if the member or their family has not provided text.

We encourage members to provide Cryobio text in advance since they may wish to include different information than they would in a living biography. For instance, members may want to include more genealogical information in a Cryobio, or publicly express wishes for revival. Once we have the long-planned Member Portal set up, members will be able to easily supply Alcor with text both for Cryobios and regular Member Bios. The Cryobio will be linked to the List of Patients.
