Presenting the LMU Munich Amgen Scholars in 2016
The 21 scholars were selected from 509 applicants. With 6 male and 15 female participants, they bring a total of 14 nationalities into the programme and their countries of origin are as far as China, Belarus, and Turkey. Scholars are paired with 17 participating labs this year at LMU, MPI Institutes, and the Helmholtz Center in Munich.
The programme started with the traditional Opening Retreat, where scholars were introduced to the LMU site staff, affiliated faculty, and relevant research topics, before joining the labs this week.

We wish all scholars a successful and fruitful summer!
