    pass up 2009 January 5 2009 Hey Santa Pass us that bottle will ya Ian Anderson wise Scotsman Winter 2009 group meeting schedule here January 9 2009 The article we have designated as Paper of the Year 2008 was published in the Sep 19 issue of Cell In this paper Hotamisligil and co workers identified palmitoleic acid as an adipose tissue derived lipid hormone that stimulates muscle insulin action and suppresses hepatosteatosis January 15 2009 Heavy housekeeping in our site for the past few days Practically all pages have been modified and or updated The front page has been changed to show a nice macrophage cell loaded with lipid droplets Not without regret the Schemes and Protocols sections have been eliminated This is site version 4 4 January 20 2009 Just for the sake of nostalgia this is how the front page of v 4 3 looked like with the old and the current banner January 22 2009 An evaluation of the scientific performance of our Institute and the research groups that are part of it was recently conducted by a panel of foreign experts summoned by the Spanish National Research Council While the overall evaluation of the Institute was not positive the Eicosanoid Research Division did receive favorable reviews The only concern was that the research being conducted is at the risk of leaning too much on the conservative side of things Interestingly this is something that we ourselves had already acknowledged in the strategic plan that was submitted for the evaluation January 23 2009 In the December issue of the bulletin of the Spanish Biochemical Society there is an article by Sonia Armengou IRB Barcelona where advice in the form of Ten Commandments is provided to all those women who want to succeed in science shortened English translation here While some of the points are obvious overall this is quite entertaining reading and worth to keep in mind On a last note not clear why this decalogue was intended solely for women it suits men just as well January 30 2009 On St Bridget s day of 1593 King Henry IV of France declared that Paris is well worth a mass For the moment being that is pretty much okay for us February 2 2009 That ingesting food rich in ω 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids is very good for humans no one would dispute What it is still unclear however is whether ingesting extra amounts of ω 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids is harmless harmful or helpful An interesting article on this topic that has spawned an even more interesting correspondence was published last year by Weaver et al in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association issues of July October and November February 27 2009 It is with great sadness that we have learned of the decease of Mordechai Moti Liscovitch from the February issue of ASBMB Today In the early 90 s we were doing things on phospholipase D regulation and at that time Moti was one of the most imaginative researchers in the field We met him at scientific meetings over the years As we moved away from the phospholipase D field contact was lost but we kept fond memories of that nice Israeli guy March 18 2009 The Third European Workshop on Lipid Mediators a most exciting transpyrenaic enterprise is just walking its first steps More info coming soon March 23 2009 One swallow a spring or summer does not make Ancient Greek proverb Spring 2009 group meeting schedule here March 24 2009 We read in the March issue of the the Spanish Biochemical Society bulletin that for some Spanish scientists research excellence means just their own research and that from their buddies p 28 Some Quite an understatement indeed March 25 2009 Toll signaling next stop arachidonic acid Our latest paper in the Journal of Immunology was selected for inclusion in the journal s ImmunoCast of March 15 As indicated in the journal website a small number of papers regarded by reviewers and editors as the top 10 in their field are highlighted in the ImmunoCast section Sounds good no pun intended April 3 2009 Prossss taglandins the ei co sa noids creating pain are the ones to blame when you get inflamed and ouch they hurt inside your brain So commences the Prostaglandin song lyrics by Kevin Ahern to the tune of Oklahoma More of Kevin Ahern s wildly popular metabolic melodies here May 18 2009 More on journal impact factors Some excellent points are made in a recent article in PNAS 106 6883 6884 2009 This is another of those pieces that would have to be translated into Spanish and distributed among the chaps that populate grant evaluation panels and promotion committees in this country May 26 2009 Update on former grad students Javier Casas joined the Scripps Research Institute and Violeta Ruipérez will soon join Cambridge University Nice May 29 2009 Here is the official website for the Third European Workshop on Lipid Mediators So far things are progressing well and this promises to be quite an exciting meeting June 12 2009 Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one s living at it Albert Einstein Summer 2009 group meeting schedule here June 25 2009 Great news to end the academic year Our application for the acquisition of a Q TOF mass spectrometer has been resolved favorably Our new toy will nicely complement the ion trap machine currently in service and the soon to come triple quadrupole and GC MS instruments Now we can finally say that the ERD s Lipidomics Platform is a reality July 27 2009 Our lipidomics platform will not become a facility of the Institute we work in Present conditions are not the appropriate As for us nothing changes August 11 2009 The idea that magnesium dependent phosphatidate phosphohydrolase 1 a k a lipin 1 possesses signaling functions is gaining ground in the field An interesting review article has just been published on the topic September 1 2009 Our latest paper in the Journal of Immunology was featured on MDLinx com a site which in the words of its editorial team is the world s most up to date index of articles that matter in the daily lives of physicians and other healthcare professionals A little free exposure is always welcome September 29 2009 Pic of Clara Meana talking about macrophages and phospholipases in Oviedo during the annual meeting of the Spanish Biochemical Society Time for fun and old memories October 2 2009 When your work is an extension of who you really are deep down inside it is no longer a job or a career It is a calling Tweeted by Lance Armstrong 7 time Tour de France winner Fall 2009 group meeting schedule here October 22 2009 Yesterday José Pindado became our fourth student to earn a doctoral degree from the University of Valladolid for life can be wonderful October 25 2009 A piece of musical advice from the ERD staff to a few of those who lurk around here from time to time Metallica s Nothing Else Matters Interesting lyrics particularly those of the refrain October 30 2009 Back from the Annual CIBERDEM meeting held in Arnes Tarragona Friendly people nice place excellent premises and superb organization What else could we ask for 2008 Annual Report our part here November 13 2009 A very instructive review on the advantages and shortcomings of the lipidomics approach has recently been published in Nature Chemical Biology Highly recommended reading unsure however that the number of arachidonate containing glycerophospholipids in macrophages exceeds 100 November 28 2009 Not succumbing to the temptations of joint ventures used to be difficult in the past Not anymore Roger Glover bassist and songwriter extraordinaire had it written some time ago going nowhere sitting in a dream December 10 2009 We were asked to contribute a review article to Inmunología the official journal of the Spanish Society of Immunology It is unlikely that this article will find an audience because Inmunología is not indexed by PubMed but it was a nice lookback exercise anyway December 22 2009 There is no bad fifth or so they say Just one week ago David Balgoma successfully defended his PhD dissertation and the committee unanimously awarded him distinction David will remain a member of the ERD for quite some time yet December 23 2009 Gema Pérez Chacón just finished her tenure at the ERD While we are sad to see Gema go we thank her for the hard and dedicated work and wish the best for the future 2010 January 8 2010 After changes upon changes we are more or less the same Paul Simon American songwriter Winter 2010 group meeting schedule here January 13 2010 The local newspaper El Norte de Castilla informed its readers a couple of days ago that according to some sources the University of Valladolid currently ranks 1 332 out of 2 000 centers in scientific productivity in Spain Although none of our business if true this news is disturbing January 14 2010 The article that we have distinguished as Paper of the Year 2009 was published in the Feb 17 issue of PNAS In this article Ejsing et al reported the use of a shotgun lipidomics approach to study the lipidome of the yeast S cerevisiae They identified and quantified 250 unique molecular species belonging to 21 different lipid classes under various growth conditions This is quite an achievement not only from a technical perspective but also from a cell regulation context As pointed out in a commentary that accompanied the paper PNAS 106 2089 2090 genes and transcripts do not always predict the precise levels of active proteins enzymes and knowledge of the actual lipid metabolite levels is more predictive of metabolic implications February 20 2010 A necessary warning to bold navigators It was not us who sank the idea of a dedicated lipidomics facility for the IBGM Those who really know us please do not be misled by the usual mermaid chants March 9 2010 We recently learned of the existence of something called CAMAG TLC MS Interface Nowadays the sciences advance at barbaric rates that s a Spanish joke March 25 2010 Wretched Castile yesterday the dominating one wrapped in her rags scorns all she does not know Antonio Machado Spanish poet Spring 2010 group meeting schedule here March 27 2010 It is half amusing half flattering to receive proposals from time to time to insert commercial ads in our website For obvious reasons we do not sell advertising space and for the same obvious reasons our site s URL does not end in dot com the latter not that obvious for some April 30 2010 Our student David Balgoma has just left the building for the whiter pastures of Stockholm the Karolinska Institute to pursue postdoctoral training in lipidomics We wish him luck and success May 3 2010 A weak institute in terms of quality and scientific output a coherent and integrated research program does not exist Nice comments directly taken from the Spanish National Research Council s Action Plan for 2010 1013 Biology Biomedicine Section page 13 last paragraph Nothing to worry about though no one is going to do anything May 18 2010 Unrelated to science we have just learned that Ronnie James Dio passed away on May 16 Only a few months ago we had been so amused at discovering a Dio poster in the lab of a very recent former president of the Spanish National Research Council Following Dio s advice we will not talk to strangers who are there to do us harm May 21 2010 We welcome graduate student Carlos Guijas as a new member of the Eicosanoid Research Division June 7 2010 The Third European Workshop on Lipid Mediators was a resounding success with over 200 attendees nice atmosphere outstanding venue and excellent scientific content June 9 2010 Olimpio Montero colleague friend and mass spec companion has left the IBGM and hence the Eicosanoid Research Division Better times await him in his new destination He will be missed June 15 2010 He who is born a square cannot die a circle Gennaro Gattuso Italian fantasista Summer 2010 group meeting schedule here June 21 2010 We welcome Julio Rubio as a new member of the Eicosanoid Research Division Julio is a CIBERDEM postdoctoral fellow July 12 2010 Somebody once said that the important things in life are very few entire quote to appear here shortly Science may or may not be one of them but certainly winning the World Cup tops the list No time for losers cause we are the champions of the world July 26 2010 Everybody knows what genomics or proteomics is but frustrating as it may be not everybody knows what lipidomics is or better what lipidomics is good for Hence review articles like this one by Shevchenko and Simons are always welcome if only for the very high audience they target August 11 2010 The evaluation of CIBERDEM by external reviewers has concluded and our group received accolades such as very competitive established expertise and excellent track record very good productivity in numbers and quality or topic of research timely and highly interesting We dedicate this entry to the usual lurkers with all our affection By the way here is the CIBERDEM 2009 Annual Report our part August 13 2010 Some good pieces of advice on how to prepare an oral presentation liberally taken from the net Perhaps some of our students past and present may find interesting to follow point 5 more often September 13 2010 The ICBL meeting always represents a great opportunity to meet colleagues and friends not seen in a long time Also a great opportunity to enjoy Bilbao and the warmth of its inhabitants September 18 2010 Sun horses flamenco dancers and lipids featuring prominently in the Spanish Biochemical Society Meeting recently held in beautiful Córdoba September 24 2010 Never overdramatize things as everything can be fixed keep a certain detachment from everything as the important things in life are very few Giulio Andreotti Italian politician Fall 2010 group meeting schedule here October 4 2010 An oldie but a goldie A recent office cleanup uncovered under a mountain of papers the April 2009 issue of ASBMB Today In it there was a delightful letter to the editor talking about lipidomic initiatives in a rather unorthodox manner October 13 2010 Every once in a while our beloved institute suffers from shattering identity crises in the form of elections for director This time it should be fun to watch the bulls from the fence October 15 2010 We welcome Gema Lordén graduate student as a new member of the Eicosanoid Research Division October 30 2010 Back from the Annual CIBERDEM Meeting This time it was held in Prullans in the Catalan Pyrenees Such a nice and friendly meeting Now the fun starts at home November 18 2010 An introductory symposium for the expertomega3 platform was held yesterday in Madrid From the data presented it looks like a good idea to increase our daily intake of omega 3 fatty acids December 20 2010 Nice little Christmas card to celebrate the season The caption says Enjoy Christmas with your family Last Oct 28 the unthinkable and or unexpected depending on viewpoint did happen So yes let s celebrate the season with our family December 23 2010 Another high profile lipidomics review was recently published this one in the Dec 10 issue of Cell Also in the Leading Edge

review on prostaglandins and inflammation that was published in ATVB just one year ago that journal usually falls out of our radar Highlights are the discussion on prostaglandins of the J series and most of the section entitled Prostaglandins in Translation June 2 2012 Passionate plea liberally inspired by Mark 10 14 and Matthew 19 14 Let the next generation of youngsters come to science and do
