The Winter 2018 issue of Chem@Cam Magazine reveals how we are building for the future (by opening our new Chemistry of Health facility) and building on the past (by marking 60 years of life in Lensfield Road).

We meet the first holder of the Lord Lewis Research Studentship in Chemistry. And we recall the joke exam paper that contained questions on the energy levels of bicycle wheels and the change in entropy on consuming a packet of Opal Fruits.   

Highlights include:

A New Name for our Oldest Chair: Find out why we are renaming the 1702 Chair of Chemistry after a distinguished alumnus.

Alumni Events in 2019: News of an alumni workshop, Open Day and alumni reunion in spring 2019.

Women in Chemistry: Electron Microscopy Technical Officer Heather Greer.

From the Archive: Meet our lab assistants from a century ago. And read extracts from The Supervisors' Tripos Paper, a 1970s Rag Week stunt.
