Clone doctor worked on cryonics?

Here's an article about cloning:
It's mostly pretty standard. It has to do with an Israeli scientist, Avi
Ben-Abraham, on the multi-national team of scientists trying to clone a
human, and how he thinks it should be done in Israel. But this sentence
stood out:

"The 43-year-old doctor, whose career includes a stint as head of a US
<b>project to freeze dead people</b> and a failed bid for Israeli office,
has also been treated with skepticism by the press."

What is this "project to freeze dead people"? Is this a reference to
cryonics? Does anyone know anything about Avi Ben-Abraham?

so that he can stoop to the level of his attackers?" -Chris Russo
