Isla's research focuses on female high school rugby injury and concussion epidemiology. Through her MSc, Isla had the opportunity to evaluate injury and concussion risk factors in Canadian female high school rugby players and evaluate Canadian high school rugby coach receptiveness to an evidence-supported rugby-specific neuromuscular training warm-up. Her PhD will consider evaluations of primary injury and concussion prevention strategies in youth rugby.
