Amgen Scholars Program

Scholars will participate in complementary activities that support the Duke ASP biotechnology/drug discovery focus, including visits to local biotechnology and Pharma companies in Research Triangle Park, home to 275+ companies, and meetings with scientists and graduate students currently interning in industry as part of their Ph.D. programs. In addition to seminars, journal clubs, poster presentations, and programming that supports graduate school preparedness, Duke Amgen Scholars will participate in social and cultural activities that build community and showcase the vibrant, creative, and innovative city of Durham, NC. Based on submitted preference and interests, scholars will be matched with a faculty mentor conducting world-class biotechnology/drug discovery research. Scholars will conduct independent research related to the lab’s ongoing projects, mentored by a team of faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students.
