Pronouns: she/her/hers

Dr. Belkina received her M.D. from Russian State Medical University and her Ph.D. in Molecular Medicine from BU School of Medicine investigating the epigenetic regulation of inflammatory responses driven by bromodomain proteins. Her breadth of knowledge of flow cytometric applications includes the development of intra- and extra-cellular staining protocols and panels for use in a wide variety of applications, including immunophenotyping of mouse and human cells, apoptosis assays, cell cycle profiling and stem cell isolation. At the FCCF, Dr. Belkina assists our users with experimental design, panel development, data analysis and many other facets of flow cytometry, and is a fully proficient BD FACSARIA operator. She also trains new users and is responsible for instrument maintenance.
Anna’s research is focused on the intersection of immunology and computational biology, for her current research efforts include investigating the immune landscape of chronic inflammatory diseases and developing computational techniques to assess high-parameter single cell cytometry data. Anna is an active member of ISAC (International Society for the Advancement of Cytometry) and has been named 2015-2019 ISAC SRL Emerging Leader.
