Allison is the president-elect of the Society for Cryobiology!  

From the executive director Nicole Evans:  "Allison will become the first female President of the Society for Cryobiology which is notable and to be celebrated. I have no doubt she will serve as an inspiration to many young women cryobiologists to put themselves forward for leadership positions within the Society in years to come."

Congrats Allison!

Congrats Dr. Li!
