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!

Featured Spotlights

Dr. Marta Seczynska is an EMBO postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Lars Steinmetz at Stanford University. She currently uses genetic screens with targeted single cell transcriptome readouts to identify novel mechanisms by which RNA-binding proteins control tissue-specific gene expression and maintain transcriptional memory. She received her PhD under the supervision of Prof. Paul Lehner from University of Cambridge studying epigenetic repression by HUSH complex.

Dr. Sandy Wolin is the current president of the RNA Society. Outside of the RNA Society, she is chief and senior investigator of the RNA Biology Laboratory, Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Fredrick, Maryland, USA. In addition, she is the head of the NCI RNA Biology Initiative and Professor Emeritus of Cell Biology at Yale University. In this month’s piece written by Dr. Luiz Passalacqua, Dr. Wollin shared what inspired her to pursue a career in science, how she overcame the challenges she came up with and her advice for starting graduate students.
