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.
