Congratulations to PhD student Sikta Chattopadhyaya Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, who is the first recipient of a new scholarship created specifically to support doctoral students in their first and second years of study here at the Albrechtsen Research Centre. Chattopadhyaya’s work is focused on ways to help find cardiac fibrosis treatments in Dr. Michael Czubryt’s Molecular Pathophysiology lab.

The Berdie & Irvin Cohen (BERVIN) Scholarship is made possible through the BERVIN Endowment Fund stewarded by St. Boniface Hospital Foundation, and will be issued annually on a go-forward basis to successful applicants. Donors who support the long-term educational goals of tomorrow’s science leaders are vitally important to the future of healthcare in Canada.
