Cryobiology:

Cryobiology: The Study of Life and Death at Low Temperatures
By Greg Fahy, Ph.D. Dr. Fahy, one of the world's premier cryobiologists, provides an eminently readable overview of the science of cryobiology -- usually thought of as the study of the effects of subfreezing temperatures on biological systems.
 
Cryobiology
The official site for Cryobiology, International Journal of Low Temperature Biology and Medicine (The Official Journal of the Society for Cryobiology). You may subscribe to the paper version using an online form, or access online sample issues of Cryobiology in the International Digital Electronic Access Library (IDEAL
-- which will allow you to log onto their system as a guest).

Cryonics:

The Cryonet Home Page
Cryonet is the primary mailing list used by cryonicists to communicate with each other and discuss the state of cryonics and cryonic suspension. The Cryonet Home Page, maintained by Kevin Q. Brown, is a valuable resource for finding information pertaining to all aspects of cryonics. To subscribe to the mailing list (Cryonet) itself, send email to cryonet-request@cryonet.org with the subject line "subscribe".

Tim Freeman's Cryonics FAQ
If you've read TRANS TIME's Cryonics Intro and still have questions, this is a great place to get them answered. Many interesting aspects of cryonics addressed.

The Molecular Repair of the Brain
This paper by Dr. Ralph Merkle was originally published as
"The Technical Feasibility of Cryonics" in Medical Hypotheses Vol. 39, 1992; 6-16. It covers a tremendous amount of scientific ground, concluding ultimately that cryonics patients suspended under average conditions today probably have a good chance of being revived by the medicine of the future.

Life Extension:

Aging Research Center (ARC)
"
We are dedicated to providing a service that allows researchers in this field to find information that is related to the study of the aging process. We also endevour to introduce this field to laymen who would like to know more about the research that is being conducted in this field."

Life Extension Foundation
"The Life Extension Foundation is dedicated to the pursuit of a longer, healthier lifespan. We provide our members with information about the latest life extension research, products and therapies. And we offer some of the most advanced life extension products in the world at discount prices."

World Health Network
The official website of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). Their yearly conference is by far the largest gathering of anti-aging researchers and activists in the world.

Nanotechnology:

Engines of Creation
First published in 1986, this book arguably did more to legitimize the practice of cryonics than anything before or since.

The Foresight Institute
"
Foresight Institute's goal is to guide emerging technologies to improve the human condition. Foresight focuses its efforts upon nanotechnology, the coming ability to build materials and products with atomic precision, and upon systems that will enhance knowledge exchange and critical discussion, thus improving public and private policy decisions."

Ralph Merkle's Nanotechnology Page
If you haven't read about nanotech before, this is a great place to start, beginning with a few brief paragraphs introducing the core concepts, and continuing with links to other sources and publications.

Nanotechnology and Medicine
An exploration of the implications (which are vast, to say the least) of nanotech to the field of medicine in general.

Philosophy:

Extropy Institute
"Extropy is the extent of a system's intelligence, information, vitality, diversity, and capacity for improvement. Extropians seek to increase extropy."

Transhumanist Resources
"Transhumanism is a philosophy that humanity can, and should, strive to higher levels physically, mentally and socially. It encourages research into such areas as life extension, cryonics, nanotechnology, physical and mental enhancements, uploading human consciousness into computers, and megascale engineering.
