Amgen Scholars at the University of Cambridge participate in eight weeks of intensive research in the sciences. Each student will join the laboratory of one of Cambridge's experienced faculty members, including some of the world's top academic scientists and Nobel prize winners, gaining hands-on lab experience and contributing to the advancement of science. Students will have the opportunity to attend seminars, journal clubs, and other networking activities; and to experience the excitement of working in one of the world's foremost universities, surrounded by enthusiastic and motivated academics, graduate students and postdoctoral workers. During the programme, scholars will present their emerging findings in laboratory groups, to their supervisors and make an oral presentation to their peers. There will also be the opportunity to present a poster at the end of programme symposium hosted in Cambridge by the Amgen Scholars' European Co-ordinating Centre, which Amgen Scholars from across Europe will attend.
The University of Cambridge is among the world's foremost universities. Over the past 800 years, its contribution to the world has ranged from the discovery of the mechanism of blood circulation to the structure of DNA and from works of the great philosophers of the early 15th century, to the groundbreaking work of its many Nobel Prize winners. Cambridge is a cosmopolitan city with a beautiful medieval centre. Compact and easy to get around, it offers plenty to see and do. All Amgen Scholars will be housed in one of the city's famous Colleges.
Cambridge welcomes applications from undergraduates from across Europe and prides itself in providing the world's highest-quality university education for the brightest and best, regardless of background.
