Professor Aaron Hoskins will be joining the Board of Directors of the RNA Society. Hoskins, along with Tsutomu Suzuki (University of Tokyo, Japan) and Neva Caliskan (Helmholtz Institute for RNA-based Infection Research, Germany), was elected to serve a two year term spanning 2024-2025.
The Hoskins Lab focuses on the spliceosome, which is responsible for pre-mRNA splicing — an essential step in gene expression in all eukaryotes — and its relationship with human diseases such as cancer, retinitis pigmentosa, and spinal muscular atrophy. His research uses a combination of chemical, genetic, and physical tools.
Congratulations, Professor Hoskins!
