Description: 

The American Heart Association Summer Research Program allows students to do a research project broadly related to the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular areas. Students will be assigned to a leading biomedical research laboratory in California, Nevada or Utah for a ten-week period during the summer to work under experienced scientists. Students participate in research and present their findings at a roundtable discussion in August. The projects students work on range from basic molecular research to direct physiological studies. Examples include signal transduction, gene expression, vascular wall biology, ion transport and cellular pharmacology. Some opportunities for participation in more clinical investigations are also available.
