Hirsch Foundation

The Hirsch Foundation funds projects related to cryobiological methods to preserve viability at low temperatures. The foundation’s long-term vision is to contribute to a long and healthy life, and to prevent life from being shortened by early death. The Hirsch Foundation funds research in the following areas:

  • The reversible cryopreservation of tissues and organs at temperatures below 0°C
  • Understanding the mechanisms by which damage to tissues and organs arises during cryopreservation
  • Improving procedures and cryoprotective solutions which preserve tissue structure and prevent the formation of ice crystals

Currently, we have an open call for proposals and we invite scientists and scholars from all over the world to submit a proposal in one of the above topics by 31st August 2019.
