Dr Dumanska Hanna is a Senior Researcher at the Department of Neuronal Networks Physiology, Bogomoletz Institute of Physiology, National Academy of Science of Ukraine, where she has been since 2005. She has expertise in primary cell culturing, in vitro electrophysiological recordings and in statistical analysis. Dumanska completed her PhD in Biophysics in 2016. Her research interests focus on the role of synaptic transmission and plasticity in physiology and pathophysiology context, specifically on the visual retinocollicular synaptic transmission under normal and hypoxic conditions. Dumanska developed an originally-designed primary cell cocultivation method. This method allows to obtain monosynaptic couples of spatially identified pre- and postsynaptic neurons for further electrophysiological recordings. Such approach has been used in her research. She published six first-author papers, got a utility model of “chamber for cocultivation” and participated in up to 15 national and international conferences.
