About us

The Amgen Scholars Programme, in cooperation with the clinics, centers, departments and institutes at the LMU, especially with the Munich Center for Neurosciences - Brain and Mind, the Helmholtz Center Munich, the Technical University Munich, the Max-Planck Institutes of Biochemistry, Biological Intelligence, and Psychiatry will advance European efforts to create balanced top-level educational opportunities across Europe by supporting the mobility and networking of academics at a very early stage.

The local programme site is the LMU Campus for life-sciences in Martinsried where many high-level research institutions are situated: the LMU Biocenter, the Biomedical Center, the LMU University Clinic Großhadern, the Gene Center, the Technical University Munich, the Max-Planck-Institutes of Biological Intelligence and Biochemistry as well as the Innovation Center for Biotechnology. Over the last years, a tight research network has developed, that attracts top scientists and graduate students from all over the world. The Amgen Scholars Programme complements this by giving undergraduates the chance to be part of this exciting research environment for approximately 9 weeks.

The Amgen Scholars programme is also available at four other universities in Europe and 24 institutions worldwide. Details of the other programmes can be found here.

We would like to acknowledge the generous support of the Amgen Foundation.
