Xian Adiconis, M.S.

Xian Adiconis is a research scientist I in the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, where she works in Joshua Levin’s group developing various RNA-seq methods to accommodate different sample types and research needs. Adiconis and her colleagues in the Stanley Center investigate and evaluate cutting-edge techniques in this field and apply them in psychiatric disease research by facilitating the discovery and categorization of neuron types in particular brain regions of animal or human models.

Adiconis joined the Broad Institute in 2007, after working as a research associate at Tufts University while obtaining her master’s degree. She joined the team at the Stanley Center in 2013.

Adiconis holds an M.S. in food science and engineering from Jiangnan University in China and an M.S. in nutritional biochemistry and genetics from Tufts University.
