Canada’s premier stem cell research event, the Till and McCulloch Meetings, is just around the corner.  It seems like a fitting time to introduce you to Ph.Diddy, a creation of Life Technologies Corp – coincidentally a conference sponsor.

Ph.Diddy has pre-conference jitters about having to present his poster to his community of researchers, probably stem cell and regenerative medicine experts. Luckily he has more experienced colleagues to show him the ropes and offer useful tips.

What advice would you have for Ph.Diddy and others? If you spot a moose in Banff, keep your distance?


Our regular feature, Right Turn, showcases the “lighter” side of stem cells and regenerative medicine. Every Friday, we will bring 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)
