Description: The UCSF Amgen Scholars Program provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to conduct research in the basic sciences with an emphasis on health-related research including Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Bioengineering, Biological and Medical Informatics, Biomedical Sciences, Biophysics, Cell Biology, Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Developmental and Stem Cell Biology, Genetics, Neuroscience, Oral and Craniofacial Sciences, and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacogenomics. The goal of this ten-week summer experience is to prepare students for graduate study and a research career in the health sciences. Students complete an original project under the guidance of a faculty mentor whose work is closely aligned with the student’s research interests and experience. During the last week of the program, Amgen Scholars present their findings in a written abstract, and give oral and poster presentations at a Research Symposium attended by faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate students. Participants also attend a mid-summer Symposium with Amgen Scholars from all host institutions.
