“Through the Amgen Scholars Program, we’re empowering students. We are helping new careers in science take shape and are fostering scientific innovation at its roots. We couldn’t do this without our collaborative partners, 13 leading academic institutions in the US and Europe, and their many mentors and leaders, who are working tirelessly with us toward this common goal.”
