The RiboClub Team
The RiboClub recent had its annual Social Day at Manoir des Sables on Friday, June 16th, 2023, which was a huge success!
Under the theme “From Little Green Men to Little Green Habits: An Exploration of Sustainability”, we were delighted to welcome four guest speakers: Loïc Lannelongue, Shannon Sterling, Robert Lamontagne and Haley Sapers, renowned experts in the fields of astrobiology and green science.
The Social Day brought together a large number of Sherbrooke members who had the opportunity to celebrate RiboClub’s recent achievements and expand their knowledge beyond the field of RNA, all while networking with fellow members. The afternoon was filled with fun outdoor activities with ten teams competing against each other. Congratulations to Team Laïka for coming in first place!
Thank you to everyone who attended the 2023 RiboClub Social Day, our four guest speakers, and our sponsors REMDUS, RECMUS, and Le Fonds d’appui à l’engagement étudiant (FAEE). A special shout-out to the RiboClub Student Executive Committee whose hard work made this day possible!

Congratulations to Benoit Chabot for receiving the
RNA Society Lifetime Achievement in Service Award.
Benoit Chabot, Professor at the Department of Microbiology at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Université de University of Sherbrooke, Canada, is recognized for his extraordinary contributions to the RNA Society throughout the years. Benoit has been a member of the RNA Society since its founding and has played an integral part, serving as co-organizer of our Annual Meeting in 2001 (Banff) and 2009 (Madison) and lead organizer in 2014 (Québec City). Since 2015, Benoit has demonstrated exemplary commitment, vision and leadership as chair of the Meetings Committee. In this role, he ensured the success of the society’s Annual Meeting even under the very difficult circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. By being creative and bold, while maintaining a focus on how to best serve the Society, Benoit ensured that attendance at the annual meeting remained robust. Benoit also established a new initiative – the RNA Society Childcare, Dependent-care and Disability Allowance program. Apart from his efforts for the RNA Society, Benoit is recognized for his work promoting RNA science in Canada; he is a founding member of the RiboClub of Sherbrooke and has co-organized the annual RiboClub Symposium since the first meeting in 2000.
