Organs for Life

Since 2023 October, I have been helping out with the Organs for Life website.  This effort is sponsored by the non-profit Immortalist Society and championed by Joseph Kowalsky.  The goal of the project is to promote the advancement of an emerging medical technology that will enable donated organs to be preserved indefinitely until needed for transplantation.

Similar to the XPRIZE, Organs for Life is offering a cash award, a CryoPrize, for a successful implementation of the organ preservation technology.  As stated in the rules, this requires the successful demonstration of a cryopreservation, rewarming, and transplantation of an organ.  It might not be long before the CryoPrize is awarded as many researchers have been having recent success with nanowarming.
