Signals Blog

Last week we launched a new feature — Right Turn — to showcase the “lighter” side of regenerative medicine. Every Friday, we will be bringing you cartoons, photos, videos and other content that may be just as thought provoking as the written submissions that you are used to finding here, but they definitely won’t be blogs.

As always, we welcome your feedback and we also welcome suitable submissions. Be creative! Use the right (!) side of your brain. Make us laugh! Let’s see if we can make this new direction a positive one for all of us. Send your submission to info(at)

This week’s Right Turn:

“I think stem cell research is the coolest thing since free porn on the Internet.” — Dan Piraro

That’s a quote from the creator of the Bizarro comic. About a month or so ago, a couple of panels from his blog library were circulating on Twitter and they caught our attention. It’s possible you may have seen them, since Bizarro is syndicated in about 350 newspapers in North and South America — even so, they’re worth seeing again in full colour.

And, for the record, we happen to think stem cell research is way cooler than porn of any kind.
