Benedict Chambers, PhD, Programme Director

Undergraduate students selected for the Amgen Scholars Europe Program at Karolinska Institutet will be given the opportunity to conduct research during 8 weeks in the summer at KI. Selected students can choose from pre-clinical scientific research topics within all of KI’s research areas, described on KI’s program website. The program will begin with an introduction to research at KI together with lectures on scientific writing and poster presentation. Throughout the program, students will be part of a research group and participate in lab work, scientific discussions, journal clubs, seminars, and other topics. Students will have housing in Stockholm, with easy access to the campus. The students will also be offered a social program with the possibility to explore the nature and cultural aspects of Stockholm. The program will end with oral and poster presentations of the conducted research where the students also get trained in critiquing each other’s work. We believe that this is an excellent way of providing a robust academic research experience to students from across Europe. In early September, the Amgen Scholars will participate in the European Amgen symposium at the University of Cambridge, joining all students participating in the Amgen Scholars Europe Program. The research of tomorrow will be done by the students of today.

Karolinska Institutet is one of the world’s foremost medical universities. Our vision is to make a significant contribution to the improvement of human health; our mission is to conduct research and education and to interact with the community. As a university, KI is Sweden’s single largest centre of medical academic research and offers the country’s widest range of medical courses and programmes. Since 1901 the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet has selected the Nobel laureates in Physiology or Medicine.

Interested students from across Europe are invited to visit the Program website for further details.
