MUSRF is a student body (operational under the aegis of Directorate of Research, Manipal University, Manipal), that emboldens the spirit of research among the student community of Manipal University. The council was constituted in the year 2013 and since then successfully, it has organized many events promoting the research among the students of Manipal University. Every year the committee organizes various competitions/events at the university level e.g., Research Poster Competition during Manipal Research Colloquium, Summer Training Programme, Interdisciplinary Conference on Healthcare and Technical research (ICHTR) etc., where students present their original research work in the form of posters and oral presentations.
