The Society for Cryobiology is an international scientific society that was founded in 1964. Its objectives are to promote research in low temperature biology, to improve scientific understanding in this field, and to disseminate and aid in the application of this knowledge. The Society also publishes a journal called Cryobiology.

Although some members of the Society for Cryobiology encouraged or helped in the development of early-stage cryonics in the 1960s, the Society later on banned cryonicists from becoming members.[1]
