#ResearcherSpotlight highlights Dr. Grant Pierce from the Cell Biology Laboratory. 

"Our work investigates the basic mechanisms that may be responsible for modifying, inducing or preventing cardiovascular disease. Our research is unique in that it attempts to go from bench to bedside in a number of studies employing not only cell biology and molecular biology techniques to improve our understanding of cardiovascular health, but also dietary interventions to delay or prevent the development of cardiovascular disease processes."

Introduction
First there was the St. Boniface Hospital, then there was the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation, and then came St. Boniface Hospital Research - which has evolved into a research campus that includes the Sakharov MRI Centre and the I.H. Asper Clinical Research Institute.

Together they create and maintain a tradition of excellence in medical care, education, and research.

The St. Boniface Hospital is Western Canada's first hospital. It was founded in 1871 by the Grey Nuns, a religious congregation inspired by Mother Marguerite D'Youville. The Mission, Aims and Objectives of the Hospital were then, as they are now:
  • To provide the highest quality of care to its patients and of service to its community
  • To participate in the education of personnel
  • To promote research for the improvement of patient care
The St. Boniface Hospital Foundation was established in 1971 as part of the centennial celebrations of the Hospital. The Foundation acts as the primary fund-raising body for the St. Boniface Hospital Inc., and promotes excellence in health care research related to the prevention and treatment of disease, the promotion of good health, and improvements in patient care. All with the overriding objective of improving individual quality of life and respecting the individual.

St. Boniface Hospital Research is a result of the emphasis that both the Hospital and Foundation place on medical research.
