Professor Robert Ben will receive research funding from the Canadian Glycomics Network - GlycoNet for his project on ice recrystallization of human cells and tissues

Posted on Thursday, March 21, 2019

The process of ice recrystallization figures prominently into the cryoinjury that cells and tissues sustain during preservation at subzero temperatures and conventional cryoprotectants fail to protect cells from this injury. As a result, the ice recrystallization inhibitors (IRIs) developed by the Ben laboratory are uniquely positioned to improve cryopreservation outcomes and enable emerging regenerative and cellular therapies by permitting the safe and effective short and long-term storage of these cellular products.
