The RNA Bioscience Initiative enhances research in RNA biology across the Anschutz Medical Campus through its Pilot Grant Program. Support may be in-kind or monetary depending on the studies proposed. New grant offerings are announced twice yearly- spring
and fall; past offerings have included single-cell RNA-seq, RNA-seq, bioinformatics support, RNA-Biology, single-cell technology development, RNA-Clinical, and RBI seed grants.
The RNA Bioscience Initiative supports multiple informatics fellowships at the Senior Research Associate Level. The objective of these unique, semi-autonomous postdoctoral positions is to train the next generation of bioinformatic analysts with the goal
of mastering skills spanning both biology and computer science. Appointments are for two years with the possibility to extend for an additional year. Salaries commensurate with experience but will be above NIH pay scale for post-doctoral fellows.
The RNA Bioscience Initiative supports graduate students through its RNA Scholars Program. Applicants are selected based on previous accomplishments and promise in RNA Research. The RNA Scholar awards provide 1-year of stipend support and a small discretionary
The RNA Bioscience Initiative provides support for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to attend RNA-focused scientific meetings, conferences, and workshops.
