Congratulations to all LMU Amgen 2017 scholars!
Over the past summer, 19 Amgen Scholars coming from 15 different countries have conducted 9 weeks of hands-on research in laboratories within the fields of biochemistry, structural, molecular, cell, and developmental biology, cellular and organism neurobiology, computational neuroscience, proteomics, biophysics, cancer research, molecular medicine and physiological sciences.
LMU Biocenter and BioMedical Center, LMU Klinikum, Helmholtz Zentrum München, and BCCN Munich, as well as the Max-Planck-Institutes (MPI) of Biochemistry, Neurobiology and Psychiatry, and TUM have been their hosts.

The LMU Amgen Scholars of 2017 revealed their summer research results in a poster session followed by a closing ceremony on Friday, September 1st, from 11:00 to 15:00 at the LMU Biocenter in Munich. Among the guests attending the event were also their mentors and tutors, graduate stuents, LMU International Office representatives and Amgen representatives from Munich.
With very positive feedback from labs and scholars, and a very colorful and united group this year, the Munich Poster Session was an exciting event.
This year the programme ended with the Cambridge Symposium, where the 2017 LMU Amgen Scholars were invited to the University of Cambridge to present their work to a large audience, meet their European colleagues, and network with faculty and industry representatives.
