Presenting the LMU Munich Amgen Scholars in 2018
This year we are welcoming 20 scholars to the Amgen Scholars Programme in Munich. Selected from over 400 applicants, the especially diverse cohort this year brings a total of 16 nationalities into the programme, with countries of origin are as far as China, Singapore, Kazachstan and Russia. The 10 male and 10 female participants are paired with 17 labs at LMU Munich, MPI Institutes of Biochemistry, Neurobiology and Psychiatry, TUM and Helmholtz Center Munich.
The programme started with our traditional Opening Retreat in Spitzing, where scholars were introduced to the LMU site staff, affiliated faculty, and relevant research topics, before joining the labs this week.
