AbstractThere is some discrepancy as to what is really the kick-off date of the Eicosanoid Research Division (or the Eicosanoid Laboratory, as it came to be known first). Truth be told, the thing took its first official steps in September 2000, with my definitive arrival in Valladolid. Beginnings are always difficult, and mine in the old capital of Castile was no exception. Because of this and a few other things, the details of which I will spare the reader, I usually like to set the beginning of our scientific adventures in Castile just one year after, in the fall of 2001, which is when something resembling a lab was finally put at my disposal and a few people were around to start the journey along. Our subject matter, obviously lipids and all things lipids. Why always lipids?, you may ask. Good question. For the moment being, let’s just say that lipids play fundamental roles in the regulation of cell signaling, and that imbalances in lipids and lipid-mediated signaling cause a large number of diseases, including type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer, arthritis and atherosclerosis. With that in mind, it should become obvious that one of the first steps we have to take in the direction of curing these diseases is to identify the lipids that are involved and what they specifically do.
