To mark International Women’s Day, the Women’s Centre at the University of Manitoba proudly organized the Magnificent Women’s Award Gala (MWAG) to celebrate the achievements of self-identifying women. Among the distinguished recipients was Dr. Inna Rabinovich-Nikitin, who holds the role of Principal Investigator at the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, St. Boniface Hospital Research. Her commitment to pioneering research aimed at enhancing women’s heart health has rightfully garnered her the esteemed Women in Health Sciences Award.

With a focus on improving the diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life for women with cardiac diseases, Rabinovich-Nikitin’s research program delves into the interplay between circadian biology and cardiometabolic dysfunction in heart failure. Her studies aim to unravel the sex-dependent influences on cardiac metabolism and understand the molecular signaling pathways affected by circadian rhythms and environmental factors.

Through her work she exemplifies excellence in health sciences and serves as an inspiration to aspiring researchers and healthcare professionals worldwide. Her dedication to advancing women’s heart health underscores the significance of continued research and innovation in the field.
