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.
Read about your colleagues’ career paths, their advice for succeeding in science, and their favorite RNA!
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.
