Amgen Scholars Poster Session

Now in its sixth year, the Amgen-UROP Scholars Program invites undergraduates to participate in faculty-mentored summer research at MIT in the science and biotechnology areas. This summer, MIT is host to 23 Scholars — 13 undergraduates attending four-year colleges and universities from across the United States and 10 MIT undergraduates.

Students admitted to this program, known as “Amgen Scholars,” have opportunities to conduct research, analyze data, present research results, network with other undergraduates with similar research interests, develop working relationships with MIT faculty mentors and other research staff, and attend the annual Amgen Scholars Symposium at UCLA that brings together Scholars from all 10 U.S. program sites.

MIT is one of 10 U.S. universities and three overseas institutions participating in Amgen Scholars Programs thanks to support from the Amgen Foundation.

This year’s Amgen Scholars Poster Session, which marks the culmination of the summer program for MIT-based Scholars, is from noon to 2 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 10, in Lobby 13. All are welcome to attend.
