"During my participation as part of the Amgen Scholars Program at the University of Cambridge, I was based in the Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience. Although I had no previous research experience, Dr. Hugh Robinson gave me the opportunity to do my project on electrophysiological properties of small-cell lung cancer. We found that a specific potassium voltage-gated channel appears to be related to tumor growth, making it a potential target for therapy."
"Conducting research at the University of Cambridge has given me the skills and confidence to work independently in my research field."
“The Amgen Scholars Program has been the biggest and most immersive scientific experience I have had in my life.”
“I didn’t really know what psychologists in the lab do. I mean, yes, I’ve read scientific papers, but nothing beats hands-on experience.”
“All the lab techniques that I mastered during the Amgen Scholars Program were essentially the ones that I use now every day.”
