CRYO2016 Launches Meeting App!

In an effort to be more environmentally sensitive, the CRYO2016 meeting is attempting to go paperless!  New this year, we will not be printing a meeting program or the abstract book.  These documents will be available electronically through an innovative meeting app. Attendees are encouraged to download the Whoa CRYO2016 app (click here for instructions) and use this throughout the meeting to access meeting materials and to engage and connect with other meeting attendees.
