Florie D'Orazi, Ph.D.

Project and Alliance Manager

Florie D’Orazi serves as a Project and Alliance Manager for the Allen Institute MindScope Program. This program explores how the brain processes distinct features of the visual world by recording the activity of different cortical areas and their composite cells in individual animals as they perform visual tasks.

Prior to joining the Institute in 2018, Florie served as a Science Officer for the Department of Defense’s Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) administered by the US Army, where she managed an award portfolio supporting research as well as product development efforts in the field of traumatic brain injury. Florie completed her PhD in Neuroscience from University of Washington, studying neuronal regeneration in zebrafish, and earned her BS in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior from the University of California, Davis.
