Ph.Diddy at the Conference

Arnold Young (aka the Ph.Diddy) is a biotech Ph.D. candidate. Arnold has adjusted to the ups and downs of life in the lab. With his poster ready, he's now headed for his first scientific conference. Arnold is nervous and excited. He can't wait to meet and mingle with others who share his fascination for science, and maybe grab some freebees at the exhibition booths. April Brite (aka the Ph.Diva) and the PI are also there. Arnold notices the girl at "the poster next door", but does she notice him?
