The AMUSRF will NOT be offered in 2021. Please check back for updates on the 2022 program.
The Asghar Memorial Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship (AMUSRF) program funds 1-2 full-time University of Houston undergraduate students with little or no laboratory research experience to engage in a research educational experience for 10 weeks (early June to early August) during the summer in the laboratory of a UHCOP Department of Pharmacological and Pharmaceutical Sciences (PPS) faculty member.
The intent of this program is to encourage students to pursue a career as a basic research scientist. No course credit will be offered for participation in this program.
Interested students should submit a resume with complete academic record, a personal statement not exceeding 500 words, and two letters of recommendation to Ms. Melissa Nieto (email@example.com).
Selected student(s) will be notified of the decision in the first week of May. The AMUSRF program provides a $1,000 scholarship to the selected student(s).
The AMUSRF program was established in 2019 to honor the memory of Dr. Mohammad Asghar, a PPS faculty member who led a successful renal physiology laboratory, and was highly supportive of undergraduate research.
