About Us

We are a group of UK researchers focused on cryonics and cryopreservation. Our network was established in 2015 to promote research on cryopreservation and discuss its potential applications, including the idea of cryopreserving whole humans, commonly known as cryonics. Our activities are supported by several distinguished UK and international advisors:

Dr Roman Bauer

Dr Bauer is a computational neuroscientist with a research focus on neural development. He works in the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University.

Prof Gregory Benford

Prof Benford is a Professor at the Physics & Astronomy School of Physical Sciences at the University of California, San Diego, USA. His research interests include turbulence and magnetic structures in astrophysical contexts.

Dr Barry Bentley

Dr Bentley is a neuroscientist and associate lecturer at the Open University, UK, and a member of Magdalene College, University of Cambridge, UK. His research includes connectomics, the study of neural circuits, and the classification of age-related diseases.

Prof Antonei Csoka

Prof Csoka works on the molecular biology of ageing and is a biogerontologist at Howard University, Washington DC, USA.
