The RBI Summer Internship Program is a 10-week hands-on, mentored research opportunity for undergraduates who want to gain real-world laboratory experience in RNA biology, chemistry, biochemistry, genomics, and bioinformatics.
The RBI Informatics Fellows Program recruits and trains postdoctoral fellows in cutting edge RNA bioinformatics. The Fellows divide their time between bioinformatic collaboration with other groups on campus, internal projects involving software and method
development, and teaching.
The RBI Informatics Fellows host weekly RBI Office Hours on Thursdays. Office hours allow investigators across campus to ask questions about the design, execution, and analysis of RNA-related sequencing experiments.

All RBI workshop course offerings are developed and taught by the RBI Informatics Fellows. Topics include single-cell RNA sequencing, genomic analysis, and biological data analysis with R/R studio.
The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus houses a variety of PhD graduate programs the support RNA-based research and provide access to RBI faculty.
A collection of informatics courses appropriate for RNA biologists is offered by the CU Anschutz Graduate School and are taught by RBI faculty and postdoctoral fellows.
The RNA Scholars Program is a training opportunity for current CU Anschutz graduate students that provides 1-year of support (stipend + discretionary) for outstanding candidates whose projects have an RNA focus.
"The RBI focus on bringing in single-cell RNAseq and other new technologies has introduced RNA research to a large, diverse community of researchers on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus."
Kent Riemondy, PhDResearch faculty lead of the RBI Informatics Fellows
"The RBI allows RNA researchers in Colorado to share their work more effectively and frequently, promoting more meaningful collaborations."
Danielle Bilodeau, PhDFormer RBI RNA Scholar
"RBI's focus on education and training for junior scientists has provided material support for a large group of trainees to “skill-up” on RNA bioinformatics as a cohort. I honestly don't think I could've chosen a better place for PhD graduate training."
Laura WhiteRBI RNA Scholar
"The RBI created inter-department and inter-campus communities by providing technical and academic resources… built pipelines for recruiting trainees… and spread the word that CU Anschutz is a major RNA hub."
