The Alcor Life Extension Foundation is the world leader in cryonics, cryonics research, and cryonics technology. Alcor is a non-profit organization located in Scottsdale, Arizona, founded in 1972, to help bring cryonics to the world.

Preserving Life
Cryonics is the practice of preserving life by pausing the dying process using subfreezing temperatures with the intent of restoring good health with medical technology in the future.

Pausing the Dying Process
The definitions of death change over time as medical understanding and technology improve. Someone who would’ve been declared dead decades ago may still have a chance today. Death used to be when a person’s heart stopped, then when their heart couldn’t be restarted, and is now being extended further.

Modern Science
Cryonics sounds like science fiction, but it’s based on modern science. Life can be stopped and restarted if its basic structures can be preserved. Vitrification can preserve biological structure very well – much better than freezing. Methods for repairing biological structure at the molecular level can now be foreseen.

Cryonics Within Reach
We’re making cryonics accessible to everyone. With low monthly dues and an insurance policy, you’re all set. When the time comes, we’ll perform your cryopreservation at our state-of-the-art facilities. Patients are kept in secure, long-term cryogenic dewars until revival. Welcome to your future.
