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!
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.
Solomon Haziel hails from Ghana and is a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the lab of Professor Dixie Goss at City University of New York (CUNY)–Hunter College. Read about how he chose his graduate program, what he enjoyed about his first RNA Society meeting last year in Berkeley, and what advice he has for other trainees who will be joining us for the first time at RNA2019 in Krakow.
