The Texas A&M College of Medicine’s Summer Undergraduate Research Program received a $60,000 award from the SouthWest Affiliate of the American Heart Association. The funds, awarded to the Program Director, Brett Mitchell, PhD, FAHA, will cover the $4,000 stipend for five students per year for three years.
The selected students will be designated American Heart Association Summer Undergraduate Research Fellows (SURF) and they will perform 10 weeks of research in the lab of their choice that focuses on cardiovascular research while they participate in the program. The purpose of the American Heart Association SURF program is to encourage students from all disciplines to consider research careers.
