Kristy Kutanzi

PhD

Curiosity is what drives Kristy Kutanzi

As an undergraduate student at the University of Lethbridge, Dr. Kristy Kutanzi (BSc '06, PhD '11) worked with Dr. Olga Kovalchuk, a nationally recognized researcher known for her work in radiation and epigenetics. Kristy's experience inspired her to pursue her own research into genetic influences of cancer as a PhD student.

As a graduate student, Kristy received funding from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Alberta Cancer Research Institute. She also became a Medical Research Scholar for the Alberta Heritage Foundation and earned the prestigious Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship, valued at $150,000.

Kutanzi credits the support she received at the U of L for helping her discover her passion for research.

"The practical training that I received in labs during my undergrad was a turning point for me," says Kristy. "Dr. Kovalchuk fostered my interest in science and encouraged me to pursue a higher level of education in the field. Undoubtedly, she has provided me with invaluable tools and advice to succeed in my research career."
