A signature component of the summer program is the symposium where students hear firsthand from leading scientists working in industry and academia. Over the course of the symposium, Scholars have the chance to share their summer research projects with their peers and deepen their understanding of drug discovery and development.
Amgen Scholars from across the U.S. meet in California, Amgen Scholars from across Europe convene in England, and Amgen Scholars across Japan meet in Tokyo. The three symposia provide undergraduates with a valuable opportunity to network with other Amgen Scholars as well as interact with top industry and academic scientists.
