The Winter 2019 issue of Chem@Cam Magazine has now been published. 

Highlights include:

A vital legacy of research: The late Professor Chris Dobson has left us a vibrant programme of research into the chemistry behind Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases. 

Artificial Leaf produces clean gas: An 'artificial leaf' device created here can make a key industrial gas using only sunlight, carbon dioxide and water instead of fossil fuels.

The alumni on a Heartfelt mission: Former students are developing a monitor that, by photographing patients' feet, can spot the warning signs of heart failure.
