Several Institutes and organizations, including the EMBO, have started initiatives to offer support to scientists affected by the recent immigration ban in the United States. The RNA Society Board supports these initiatives, and we encourage those who can help in hosting affected scientists to sign up on the EMBO site: http://www.embo.org/science-solidarity.
Whether or not you are directly affected by the travel ban, you have friends and supporters in our Society, both in the US and in the world-wide science community. If there is any way that we can help in this difficult time, please let us know.
