Salons

Launched in 2016, the RNA Salon program provides financial support for recurring local/regional RNA science-based activities held at academic institutions throughout the world. With the aim of promoting engagement and interaction among RNA scientists, the RNA SOCIETY hopes to advance the training and professional development of RNA researchers, with a particular focus on junior trainees.

The RNA SOCIETY is now excited to announce that a record number 54 RNA Salons have been selected for funding in 2019/20.

To learn more about how to qualify for support from the RNA Society for your RNA-related events, please see the ‘Guidelines for RNA Salon Support’.

The RNA Salon program has proven successful in fostering the engagement of our vibrant pocket communities of RNA researchers. In 2018/2018 the program enjoyed participation by an astonishing 5,000 RNA worldwide. 

In June 2019, a Summary of 2018/2019 RNA Salon activities was presented to the RNA Society Board of Directors in June 2019 highlighting the strong growth and tremendous impact of the RNA Salon program.

We hope that you all have an opportunity to attend an RNA Salon event in your area, and to connect with your colleagues and peers who are equally enthusiastic about RNA as you are!
