Foundation of our Society
Japanese Society for Cryobiology and Cryotechnology (JSCC) was founded in 1959 as the Society for Research of Freezing and Drying, and was developed into the present Society in 1994 to cover broader research fields of low-temperature biology and its related technologies.
The objective of our Society is to promote and activate research in the field of low-temperature biology and its related technologies of freezing and/or drying through the constant communication between the researchers engaged in both fundamental and application fields of various studies.
Scope of studies
The scope of studies extends from biological basic sciences to agriculture, pharmacy, medicine and food, biomedical or mechanical engineering associated with cryobiology and cryotechnology.
Now our Society has approximately 200 members, and has an annual meeting and a seminar in May or June. Two issues of Japanese Journal with English abstracts containing original papers as well as reports are also published annually as one of its activities.
