Organ crosstalk in energy balance and metabolic disease (8-11 April 2018)

We are organizing an EMBO Workshop to provide the most important and up-to-date research in the field of metabolism. The workshop will focus on understanding the recent progress in adipocyte biology (cell fate and browning), liver metabolism including steatosis and the role of the central nervous system in the control of the energy homeostasis. Special emphasis will be done to highlight the importance of the organ crosstalk and how signalling pathways in one tissue could affect the metabolism in other tissue.

The goals of this EMBO Workshop are to provide important new insights into the primary pathogenesis of these disorders, and especially focus on those that might lead to new therapies.

CICERONE program 2018 for Masters and advanced undergraduate students

Though the CICERONE Program, our group is open to master and advanced undergraduate students for extending their scientific training through hands-on experience in our laboratory during the summer recess. In addition to carrying out a supervised research project, the students will also attend CNIC seminars.

The aim of the program is to give university students first-hand knowledge of biomedical research so that they can make more informed choices about the possibility of pursuing a scientific career.

To apply, you must register at CNIC website before 6 April 2018.

For the 2018 call, we are offering tehe following research project:

  • Role of p38MAPK in metabolic diseases: Metabolic syndrome is a medical disorder defined by the co‐occurrence of obesity, impaired glucose tolerance, dyslipidemia and hypertension. Stress activated protein kinases have been shown to control both obesity by itself and diabetes associated to obesity. These stress kinases are activated by several MAPK activated kinases (MKK). We want to investigate the role of MKK3 in this process and the molecular mechanism by which this kinase could affect diabetes.

¿Quién dirige la orquesta en la obesidad? (15 March 2018)

On Thursday 15 March 2018, at the XIV Congress of the Spanish Society for the Study of the Obesity (SEEDO) Guadalupe Sabio (Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares Carlos III) and Amaia Rodríguez Murueta-Goyena (Clínica Universidad de Navarra) will debate about which is the main organ orchestrating the diseases caused by obesity.
