The American Heart Association-funded Supporting Undergraduate Research Experiences (AHA SURE) program provides a 9 week (Jun 3 - Aug 2) summer research experience at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX. Applicants will be paired with faculty mentors and conduct research. Applicants will build their science communication skills by presenting at a symposium at the end of the summer. Applicants will network with other AHA SURE awardees, leading scientists and physicians from other institutions at the AHA Scientific Sessions national meeting in November.
