17th Annual Campod Golf Challenge
The Team
Another fantastic Golf Day took place on Tuesday 4th July at the City of Ely Golf Club with 56 golfers taking to the course. Again, the weather conditions were perfect. The day was a huge success raising £825 for Campod, which will be used to purchase ultracentrifuge rotors for use by all laboratories in the Department of Pathology on the Tennis Court Road site.
Campod would like to thank the City of Ely Golf Club, for allowing us to host this event at their wonderful course and to all staff involved on the day. Thanks also to Eppendorf and SLS for sponsoring the 1st hole, to all our wonderful raffle sponsors, to whom we are extremely grateful for their generosity, and lastly but not least to all our players for taking part making the day a huge success for Campod.
We hope to see everyone back again next year on Tuesday 3rd July 2018.

Published in Nature - Building nano-machines in biological outer space

Scientists in the Department’s Microbiology Unit have solved a long-standing mystery confounding both biologists and physicists - how are long flagella ‘propellers’ built far outside the biological cell where there is no conventional energy source ?

In the journal Nature Dr Lewis Evans et al publish their Wellcome Trust-funded research, led by Dr Gillian Fraser and Professor Colin Hughes, which uncovers a simple and elegant ‘chain mechanism’ harnessing the entropic force generated by the unfolded subunits themselves. More
