Masatoshi Hagiwara, from the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, at Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine, in Kyoto, Japan, is interested in understanding the mechanisms involved in regulating alternative splicing in living cells. In order to do high-throughput analysis of alternative splicing regulation in an organism, he has developed a splicing reporter system in the worm C.elegans.

He has been invited by Juan Valcárcel (CRG).
