Welcome to the RNA Society. We’re a non-profit, international scientific society with more than 1800 members dedicated to fostering research and education in the field of RNA science. We host a peer-reviewed scientific journal, RNA, and an annual scientific conference, along with sponsoring other RNA-related scientific conferences through direct financial support and student travel grants. Mostly, we are a community of scientists who are passionate about better understanding the fascinating world of RNA biology.

In Memoriam: Marie Öhman
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our friend and colleague Marie Öhman on February 3, 2019, to colon cancer. Marie was graduate student with Gerhart Wagner and Britt-Marie Sjöberg, and did postdoctoral work with Brenda Bass before becoming a professor in the Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, at Stockholm University. Her research added important details regarding the functional consequences of adenosine to inosine (A-to-I) RNA editing in neurons and in understanding how editing contributes to the variety of the transcriptome during brain development and neuronal stimulation. Marie served the RNA Society as a member of the editorial board for the journal, RNA, as a member of the Meetings Committee, and as a poster judge at our annual meetings. She is survived by her husband, her brother, and two wonderful sons of whom she was very proud.

Member Spotlight Series
In recognition of the outstanding lives and accomplishments of our members, each month we profile two RNA Society members—one Full member and one Student/Post-doctoral Fellow member—as part of our Member Spotlight Series.
Dr. Anita Corbett is Professor of Biology at Emory University. Read about how her lab combines multiple model systems to study RNA binding proteins, her advice for junior scientists, and her unusual travel to the 2014 Annual RNA Society Meeting in Quebec City.
Mr. Cody Hernandez is a graduate student at the University of Chicago in Professor Jonathon Staley’s lab. Read about his scientific path from taking remedial classes in college to graduate school and his advocacy efforts to make science better for trainees coming after him.
RNA Salons are reoccurring, regional RNA science-based gatherings that cultivate year-long interaction, engagement, sharing of knowledge among RNA researchers and support of junior scientists. Read more about RNA Salons here.
In 2017/18, the RNA Society is supporting 37 RNA Salons worldwide. A complete list of funded RNA Salons can be found here.
The RNA Society regularly features the activities of exemplary RNA Salons. Our latest featured RNA Salon: The Hong Kong RNA Club—A new hub for RNA aficionados.
