The APS Local Undergraduate Research Award in Physiology (LURAP) allows APS Members to recognize undergraduate excellence in physiology research at their home institution. The award also fosters interest in physiological research for undergraduates and encourages them to continue with physiological studies. Additionally, the award encourages undergraduate researchers to connect with APS scientists at their home institutions.

The LURAP is presented by an APS member to an undergraduate at the member’s home institution’s research showcase event. The award package includes a certificate, an APS t-shirt, and a free one-year undergraduate membership. For more information, and how to apply for a LURAP package, see the “Award Information” tab on the left.
