Research Associate, Sr.

Bio:

Nadiya Shapovalova joined the Allen Institute for Brain Science in April 2004. She was participating in many of the most well-known Brain-map projects including the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas, Human Brain Atlas, Spinal Cord Atlas, and Developing Mouse Atlas. Her primary role has been in the areas of immunohistochemistry and other histology staining, reagent prep and in situ hybridization data generation.

Currently she is a member of Human Cell Types Group; working in Flow Cytometry Core and providing both bulk and single-cell sorting services, isolating cells in support of analyses of transcriptomic data sets used to identify selectively expressed genes, in a layer or cell-type specific manner, from neocortex. These data are used to identify relevant enhancer regions and used for development of viral reporters that can be utilized to help screen for specific gene expression in the neocortex of adult humans and mice.

Nadiya was born and raised in Ukraine and received her Medical Laboratory Technician degree from Kharkiv Medical Collage. After graduation, she worked in Kharkiv Medical Genetic Center and performed screening tests for newborn children.
