Symposium 2014

  • We cordially invite you to participate at the symposium "Visualisation and Manipulation of Signals and Forces in Developing Tissues", to be held in Santiago, Chile, on May 12-16th 2014. Our goal is to foster scientific interactions between Latin America and the rest of the world by bringing together a small group of scientists from around the globe interested in morphodynamics of cells and tissues from different perspectives: theory to experiment, molecules to cells, and cells to organisms.

    The symposium is organized by the Biomedical Neuroscience Institute (Chile) and QuanTissue (ESF, Europe), and will coincide with a two-week regional course on "Optics, Forces and Development" 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, Hernán López-Schier and Carl-Philipp Heisenberg
