Joe Miletich, SVP of Research and Development at Amgen, interacts with Amgen Scholars at the 2009 U.S. Symposium

Symposium

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 US meet in California, while Amgen Scholars from across Europe convene in England.  Both symposia provide undergraduates with a valuable opportunity to network with other Amgen Scholars as well as interact with top industry and academic scientists.

The symposium really stimulated me to think more deeply about why I wanted to earn a PhD, and also gave me a much stronger sense of scientific community than I had prior to the experience.” - UCLA Amgen Scholar
