The Engineering Research Center (ERC) for Advanced Technologies for the Preservation of Biological Systems (ATP-Bio) aims to “stop biological time” and radically extend the ability to bank and transport cells, aquatic embryos, tissue, skin, whole organs, microphysiological systems (“organs-on-a-chip”), and even whole organisms through a team approach to build advanced biopreservation technologies.

Our Goals:

  • Build a more robust and diverse STEM workforce, especially in the growing number of fields needing biopreservation technologies.
  • Promote and deliver equitable and inclusive STEM education from middle school to graduate school and beyond.
  • Partner extensively with for-profit and non-profit organizations to commercialize ATP-Bio technology, drive new biopreservation research, and contribute to the workforce development and culture of inclusion goals of the Center.
  • Focus extensively on ethical and public policy considerations around biopreservation so that ATP-Bio’s technology can be effectively translated to public benefit.
