Bruno Guerreiro is a Ph.D. student researching cryopreservation of biological systems. His thesis is titled “Cryobiophysics: structure-function-property-design interplay of biopolymers in crystal binding”. As a visiting student researcher at The University of California, Berkeley, Bruno is going to gain expertise on cutting-edge isochoric cryopreservation technology using biopolymeric cryoprotectants, under the supervision of Dr. Boris Rubinsky, with around 50 years of expertise in the field. His stay in the USA will greatly impact Bruno’s work by enabling collaboration with like-minded passionate individuals that nurture ideas from distinct schools of thought.
