Cara Isaak inaugural recipient of BMO Financial Group Research Scholarship for Excellence

  • Print

Graduate student, Cara Isaak, is the inaugural recipient of a scholarship program between St-Boniface Hospital Foundation and BMO Financial Group called BMO Financial Group Research Scholarship for Excellence.

The $500,000 scholarship is a partnership made possible by a $250,000 gift from BMO Financial Group with a $250,000 matching grant from St-Boniface Hospital Foundation. The scholarship supports students employed at the I.H. Asper Clinical Research Institute or the MacLean Building at St-Boniface Hospital Research during their graduate studies.

Isaak will receive $18,560 to further her research under the supervision of Dr. Chris Siow within the Canadian Centre for Agri-Food Research in Health and Medicine (CCARM) at St Boniface Hospital Research.

Isaak, 24, is investigating whether consuming Manitoba lingonberries could alleviate the sometimes fatal injuries that result from kidney surgery or transplants. Few treatments on the market have proven successful. Isaak is currently working towards a Ph.D. in Physiology from the University of Manitoba.
