Colorado RNA Club

RNA Club logo

The objective of the Colorado RNA Club is to bring together RNA researchers from across the state to share their research, facilitate new collaborations, and create a robust, connected, RNA-focused community. In addition to the ever popular “Evenings with RNA” co-hosted by the RNA Bioscience Initiative, the Colorado RNA Club has recently expanded its events to include an Undergrad Day and an Industry Workshop for graduate students and post-docs.

The Colorado RNA Club began in 1986 following the recruitment of Dr. Olke Uhlenbeck to CU Boulder. Originally a “supergroup” meeting of the Cech, Gold, Yarus and Uhlenbeck labs, the “club” expanded over the years as more and more groups in Colorado began to work on RNA. Today, the Colorado RNA Club includes RNA researchers from all four University of Colorado campuses, Colorado State University, Metropolitan State University, and the University of Denver.
