Ice Recrystallization Inhibition as a Mechanism for Reducing Cryopreservation Injury in a Hematopoietic Stem Cell Model

Luke K. Wu
Cryopresevation is the process of cooling biological materials to low sub-zero temperatures for storage purposes. Numerous medical and technical applications, such as hematopoeitic stem cell transplantation and sperm banking, sometimes require the use of cryopreserved cells. Cryopreservation, however, can induce cell injury and reduce the yields of viable functional cells. Ice recrystallization is a mechanism of cryopreservation injury, but is rarely addressd in strategies to optimize cell cryopreservation. The results from this thesis demonstrate an...
