Welcome to the BARC

The goal of the Bay Area RNA Club is to bring San Francisco Bay investigators together to discuss RNA-centric science. For more than two decades, the Club has met on the University of California, San Francisco Campus– where scientists come together to mingle and present their latest results.

Hundreds of student, postdocs, scientific staff, and principle investigator attendees come from both industry and academia. Major academic institutions include UC Berkeley, Stanford, UC Santa Cruz, Gladstone, UC Davis, UC Merced, and UCSF. The club has been supported by the WM Keck Center for Noncoding RNA and the RNA Society.


A special thanks to our industry donors!
