Dr. Cassandra Hayne just opened her lab at the University of Chicago, and her work focuses on uncovering the structural and biochemical basis of disease-relevant RNA processing complexes. In this month’s piece, written by Dr. Jennifer Porat, she shares the inspiration behind her decision to pursue a science career, her approach to mentorship, and her creative pursuits that have recently led to some very enviable lab gear. 

Dr. Luiz Passalacqua is currently a Research Fellow with Dr. Adrian Ferré-D'Amaré at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland (USA), where his research centers on using X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM to elucidate the structures of nucleic acid molecules. He is currently looking to take the next step of his career journey and is actively applying for tenure-track academic positions.
