In Memoriam: Elisa Izaurralde

It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely passing of our friend and colleague Elisa Izaurralde, a cherished member of our Society, Editor of our journal, RNA, and Director of the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tübingen. Elisa made pioneering contributions to our understanding of the processes and regulation of mRNA transport, decay and translation, as well as to many other aspects of RNA metabolism. She will be greatly missed.
