The January 2013 issue of Cryonics magazine contains a detailed report of our successful 2012 Alcor-40 conference, including a summary of the presentations of all speakers. This issue also features an extensive review of chemopreservation as an alternative to cryopreservation by Cryonics magazine editor Aschwin de Wolf. Among the topics discussed are the necessity of functional assays to evaluate progress in preservation methods and the advantages and disadvantages of both methods when they are practiced under non-ideal (ischemic) conditions. This issue also reports on Alcor’s use of CT scans for detecting cryoprotectant distribution and ice formation.

Cryonics magazine is published 12 times a year and is complimentary for Alcor members. Subscription to the magazine is also available by becoming an Alcor Associate member.
