Episode 006 – Could Cryopreservation for Human Organs Save 700,000 – 900,000 Lives a Year?

 

Transplanting Organs

Join us on this episode of the Methuselah 300 Podcast as we interview Dr. Sebastian Eriksson Giwa;  co-founder and chairman of the Organ Preservation Alliance and co-founder and CEO of Sylvatica Biotech.  Dr. Giwa will discuss how Cryopreservation could transform and revolutionize transplantation Currently at least 1 in 5 people on the organ waiting list die due to the inability of keeping organs viable for transport, resulting in 700,000 deaths a year by some estimates.  Dr Giwa and his team want to change that…

The Defense Department, National Science Foundation and even the White House are beginning to recognize the need and potential of this scientific frontier , and scientists from around the world to an increasing decree are tackling the remaining challenges.  

Will you join us?  You can find out how to become a foundation supporter at  Mfoundation.org.

We thank you for your support now and in the future!

Sincerely,

Methuselah Foundation

  1. Hi,

    A lot of research is being put into the development of new organs. But what about the eradication of viral infections that cause these failures in the first place?

    Have the Methuselah Foundation looked into any of Dr Todd Riders research? His drug or DRACO’s have been effective at eradicating multiple viral infections in both in vitro and in vivo models. He could do with additional funding and support to progress the research into human clinical trials.

    Regards,

    Mike

    1. Thanks, Mike. I will look up Dr. Rider’s work. We have much of our expenditures allocated, stay tuned as we have some very big announcements coming up regarding what research we will be involved with, including a very high profile government agency who has seen the value in what we are doing!…

  2. I’m not finding Methuselah on the Doggcatcher podcast app for Android. Can you put it onto their list?

    1. Thanks for writing, John. My apologies fort he slow response. I’ll look into placing the podcast there as well.
