2023 Amgen Scholars North America Symposium

See photos from the July symposium, where Amgen Scholars from the U.S. and Canada came together at the University of California, Los Angeles. Scholars heard UCLA professor Tracy Johnson share her science story and engaged with Scholar alumni to discuss their research projects, hear alumni perspectives on applying to graduate school, and explore career pathways in science. Professor Giles Yeo from University of Cambridge spoke to Scholars about the importance of science communication. Amgen scientists brought their industry insights to UCLA campus, where Scholars learned more about the biopharmaceutical industry from Ray Deshaies and the scientists on the ‘Life of a Scientist” panel. From interesting insights to informative workshops, the Scholars enjoyed meeting one another and connecting with well-respected scientists in industry and academia.
