Chlamydia and Fat 

The Chlamydia bacteria seems to use lipid droplets in host cells not only to reproduce, but also to 'hide' themselves from immune detection. This is a pretty cool trick for a bacteria, and is something researchers hadn't seen before, so it's cool. It offers the potential of new treatments.

Also, it could explain (in a retrospective, illogical and completely sarcastic way) why the slutty boys at Cobalt are all so damn skinny: they're trying to avoid Chlamydia!
