Guest Lecture: Joanna Radin on “Cosmologies of Cold”

PEG-building, room 1.G107

Cryopreservation practices are an essential dimension of contemporary life sciences. They make possible the freezing and storage of cells, tissues and other organic materials at very low temperatures and their subsequent thawing at a future date without apparent loss of vitality.

We are particularly excited to welcome Joanna Radin from Yale University here in Frankfurt. Joanna Radin has generated unique and groundbreaking analytical insights into the modalities and implications of freezing technologies and ‘cryopolitics’. Her talk will address “Cosmologies of Cold”, sharing with us some of her internationally renowned research expertise in the realm of cryopreservation.
