In 2016, the Amgen Scholars Ten To Watch highlighted some of the best and brightest up-and-comers in science and medicine. Selected from more than 3,000 Amgen Scholars alumni, representing 700 colleges across 42 countries, the Ten To Watch is a diverse group of students that has the potential to help define the future of science. The selection process, carried out by the Amgen Foundation in partnership with the participating host institutions, sought to identify the most promising alumni who are on a path to achieving real impact in their field and emerging career. The list of alumni includes a Rhodes Scholar, Ph.D. graduates from Stanford and MIT and numerous published scientists, as well as future professors, researchers and doctors who are charting unique paths to make a lasting impact.
