Subject: List of Cryonics-Related Organizations and Publications

The list is in two parts:
  (1) those organizations with suspension capability (or that are working
      toward achieving suspension capability) and
  (2) those organizations and publications that support cryonics in other
      ways (including life extension publications run by cryonicists).
Please let me know of any further omissions or corrections!
                              Kevin Q. Brown

    Founded in 1993, 21st Century Medicine has "embarked upon a
    comprehensive research program to perfect suspended animation
    and control human aging."  Initial research projects include

    resuscitation experiments, and assessing the life extension
    benefits of nine different nutrient and drug therapies.

I have no recent news about the New Zealand organization, associated, I
believe, with ACS.  Here is the information from several years ago:

but they do support cryonics in other ways.  I have not included cryonics
dinner meetings or cryonics discussion groups.

The Reanimation Foundation is set up to enable you to "take it with you"

Perpetuities, and thus allows financial assets to be owned by a person
long after the person is declared legally dead.
