"I learned about the Amgen Scholars Program through a program back at home called MARC (Maximizing Access to Research Careers). I really liked the idea that you get to do research at a really well-known institution. Coming from a small campus and a really small public university, we don’t get a lot of funding. My home university is undergoing major budget cuts in the next few years, so it’s going to be tough for both education and research."

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.
