—A week in Spain “” I like traveling, especially when it is for work. And if the destination is my country of birth (Spain), then so much the better. This is precisely what I did last week. I had the opportunity to travel to Spain and visit and give talks at two research institutes. The first one was the Institute of Medicinal Chemistry (IQM), part of the Spanish National Research Council (or CSIC, by its Spanish acronym). Based in Madrid, CSIC is the largest public institution dedicated to research in Spain and the third largest in Europe. It was founded in 1939and has over 11,000 employees working in more than 130 institutes across the country. These institutes cover many scientific and technical areas, including food science and technology, natural resources, biology and biomedical sciences, chemical and materials sciences, and more.
