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. Stanek received her Ph.D. from the University of Virginia studying Hfq proteins in the lab of Dr. Cameron Miura, and recently began post-doctoral work with Dr. Celia Goulding at University of California–Irvine. Learn about what advice she has for finding a post-doctoral position, why she believes graduate student mental health needs to be at the forefront of our discussions, and what she remembers most fondly from our 2017 meeting in Prague.
Professor Lynch is Chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of Pennsylvania and has been a leader in the field of alternative pre-mRNA splicing since graduate school. Read about why splicing initially captured her attention, what advice she has for junior scientists, and why many of her favorite RNA Society memories are associated with the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
