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!
Mr. Cody Hernandez is a graduate student at the University of Chicago in Professor Jonathon Staley’s lab. Read about his scientific path from taking remedial classes in college to graduate school and his advocacy efforts to make science better for trainees coming after him.
Dr. Laederach is an Associate Professor at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Read his advice on the importance of becoming fluent in data analysis, his thoughts on how RNA structure influences translation initiation, and his favorite story of how the annual RNA Society meeting has shaped his lab’s research.
