Undergraduate Research Programs
Research Experience for Students
The UH Drug Discovery Institute is developing several programs to provide students with the tools, resources, and knowledge to pursue careers in research that addresses unmet medical needs. Our goal is to develop the next generation of experts to lead and solve complex topics with innovative solutions. Therefore, these students will gain hands-on research experience and a toolbox of translatable skills that will prepare them for a future in relevant research careers.
UH-HEART Summer Program
Funded by the American Heart Association (AHA), the University of Houston’s – Houston Experience for Advancing Research and Training (UH-HEART) program provides transdisciplinary summer research experiences and translatable skills that prepare participants for future careers in cardiovascular-related research.
UH-DRUG Summer Program
The UH DDI Research for UnderGrads (UH DRUG) Summer Program provides transdisciplinary summer research experience focused on drug discovery and development and translatable skills that prepare participants for future careers in biomedical research. Up to five fellowships will be awarded to rising UH sophomores, juniors and seniors to participate in a focused, full-time, 10-week research experience under the direction of UH faculty.
