Fellows 2018-2019

The University at Albany announces the fourth cohort of RNA Fellows for the Ph.D. training program in RNA science. The office of Graduate Education in collaboration with Departments of Biology, Biomedical Sciences, and Chemistry provide the resources to train exceptional students in RNA Science relating to health and disease, in collaboration with the RNA Institute. These fellows will take an RNA-centric curriculum of courses and colloquia. They will also have the option to collaborate with the School of Business and the Writers Institute, to gain experience in entrepreneurship and science writing, respectively.  We are happy to announce our fourth cohort of trainees who will start in the training program beginning this fall.
