"I knew working in a scientifically prestigious university like Kyoto would provide me experience, knowledge, and connections needed for my future career. I chose the Japan Amgen Scholars Program rather than others because of Japan’s unique culture, which I was always curious about and wanted to explore."

"I also enjoyed interacting with many international students in my lab. I have come to realize that I have many colleagues with which to work, as well as lots of goals toward which I can work outside of Kyoto University."

Amgen Scholars is an international program funded by the Amgen Foundation with direction and technical assistance provided by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Cambridge.
