Formatted abstract
Masatoshi Takeichi independently discovered the cadherin adhesion molecules in 1977. He followed this with many seminal papers that elucidated the role of these molecules in disease, and defined the capacity for their dysfunction to contribute to disease. In the course of this work he has fluently moved between cellular and developmental models and several fields of biology. His early scientific training, and the background to those early achievements, have been eloquently documented before (Takeichi, 2004) . In this recent interview, we therefore decided to focus more on his current interests and his thoughts for the future.
