Congrats President Hubel!
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 Dr. Li!
Rui Li successfully defended her thesis "Mechanistic Investigation of Cell Cryopreservation Aided by Raman Spectroscopy: Challenges and Solutions for hiPSC Technologies", congrats *Doctor* Li!
