Asia Symposium

A signature component of the summer program is the symposium where students hear firsthand from leading scientists working in industry and academia. Over the course of the symposium, Scholars have the chance to share their summer research projects with their peers and deepen their understanding of drug discovery and development.

Each year, Amgen Scholars meet at the National University of Singapore to network with other Amgen Scholars as well as interact with leading industry and academic scientists.
