We cordially invite you to participate at the international course “Optics, Forces and Development”, to be held in Santiago, Chile, on May 5-16th 2014. The aim of the course is to train students, postdocs and young investigators from Latin America in theoretical and practical aspects of in vivo microscopy, and strategies for the visualisation and manipulation of cell and tissue morphodynamics in developing organisms.

The course is organised by the Biomedical Neuroscience Institute (Chile) and QuanTissue (ESF, Europe), and will coincide with the international symposium “Visualisation and manipulation of signals and forces in developing tissues” and the openlecture series on the “Origin of Animal Form in Evolution and Development”.
We look forward to having you in Santiago next May 2014, Miguel Concha and Steffen Hartel.
