Europe Symposium

A signature component of the summer programme 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 in the Europe Programme participate in this symposium at the University of Cambridge.
