November 5-8, 2017, Mont-Tremblant, Quebec. The ski resort town of Mont-Tremblant was awash in rain when many of us arrived on Sunday, but the warm and welcoming Fairmont Hotel made up for Nature’s inhospitality.

By all measures, the parts we could control were very successful. The 6th annual Till & McCulloch Meetings (TMM), hosted by the Stem Cell Network and CCRM, have come to an end, but thanks to Twitter, blogs, some articles (National Post and Ottawa Citizen), rumours and gossip (I tried to start some, but they didn’t take off), TMM 2017 will always live on.

Because so much of the science was captured online, I’m sharing some of the quirky things I noticed in Mont-Tremblant, along with some photogenic friends. What did you observe about Mont-Tremblant or at the conference? Tell us in the comments.

I hope you’ll join us in Ottawa next November 12-14 for the 2018 Meetings.
