CAM 82

In the Michaelmas issue of CAM we investigate the mystery of gravity, catch up with the new Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephen Toope and trace the extraordinary tale of the raising of the whale, at the Museum of Zoology.

Think you know what gravity is? Think again. New research is revealing how little we know about this most mysterious of forces.

Victoria Kimonides (Newnham 1993) explains why she’s passionate about representing alumni as part of the Alumni Advisory Board.

Meet five PhD students who are already making waves at Cambridge.

The University’s new development to the north-west of the city has welcomed its first residents this summer.

Hear Cambridge's 346th Vice-Chancellor in conversation with Professor Ian White, Master of Jesus College, from Alumni Festival in September 2017.

Undergraduates Lydia Bunt, Akil Hashmi and Ellen Harris undertook trips across 11 countries over the summer, meeting local alumni and visiting sites of interest, as 2017 recipients of the Student Travel Award.

Did you do a PhD here? Cambridge is offering to support the digitisation of PhD theses for alumni who are prepared to make their PhD freely available on the University’s repository, Apollo.

On the morning of Monday, 2 October 2017, Professor Stephen Toope was formally admitted as the University’s 346th Vice-Chancellor, succeeding Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz. See his special message to alumni.

And just seven years in which to make your mark. CAM talks to the Vice-Chancellor about his term of office.
