The Amgen Scholars Programme at LMU Munich

This summer programme offers up to 20 undergraduate students with the opportunity to work for 10 weeks in laboratories at the life science campus Grosshadern-Martinsried. The students will be involved in hands-on research guided by leading scientists and their teams, using state-of-the-art methods and addressing the latest scientific topics. Possible research topics are within the fields of biochemistry, structural-, molecular-, cell- and developmental biology, cellular and organismic neurobiology, computational neuroscience, and physiological sciences. The opening retreat, the social group activities and the international composition of the participants will make this program a memorable experience.
