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.

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. Kathrin Leppek is a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Maria Barna’s lab at Stanford University. Written by Spotlight team member Chun Kim, this Spotlight describes why Dr. Leppek has been fascinated by structured RNA, how she has helped organize the Bay Area RNA Club, and why she thinks bravery is so important in research.
Dr. Angie Hilliker is an Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Richmond. Written by Spotlight team member Ha An Nguyen, this piece describes the rewards of teaching and doing research at a predominantly undergraduate institution and Dr. Hilliker’s two main pieces of advice for trainees.
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 2019/20, the RNA Society is supporting 54 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.
