The objective of the council is to work collaboratively across disciplines, build a scientific community, and generate ideas and activities that advance RNA research and education across the University of Michigan.
This is a great opportunity to develop and implement ideas that enhance your curriculum and experience at U-M. The Council is also an excellent platform to further engage with peers, mentors, and faculty from the RNA research community.
The Student & Postdoc Council was founded in 2019. All members are volunteers and represent the various schools and colleges at U-M in the RNA sciences. Previous RNA Council activities include hosting a monthly RNA journal club, creating a directory of expertise: The RNA Skill Share, supporting a RNA Scholar Exchange program, as well as outreach and networking events such as a Pub Science night, The RNA Function, and UMMNH Summer Camp. The Council is awarded an annual grant from The RNA Society to support its activities.
