The mission of the Biothermal Technology Laboratory (BTTL) is to promote research and education in the general field of thermal energy in biology and medicine with emphases on:


·        Cryopreservation – the preservation of biological material at very low temperatures

·        Cryosurgery – the destruction of tissue by freezing

·        Hyperthermia – the destruction of tissues at elevated temperatures


Activity at the BTTL integrates the development of sensors, instrumentation, surgical hardware, measurement techniques, physical modeling, numerical techniques, computation tools, and thermal design.
