Gregory M. Fahy, Ph.D. cryobiologist, biogerontologist is Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer at Twenty-First Century Medicine, Inc. Dr. Fahy is the world's foremost expert in organ cryopreservation by vitrification. Dr. Fahy is credited with introducing and promoting vitrification for cryopreservation in cryobiology. In the summer of 2005, where he was a keynote speaker at the annual Society for Cryobiology meeting, he announced that Twenty-First Century Medicine had successfully cryopreserved a rabbit kidney at -130ºC by vitrification and transplanted it into a rabbit after rewarming, with subsequent long-term life support by the vitrified-rewarmed kidney as the sole kidney.
