Presenting the LMU Munich Amgen Scholars in 2017

Welcome to the Amgen Scholars LMU Munich in 2017!


This year we are welcoming 19 scholars to the Amgen Scholars Programme in Munich. Selected from over 400 applicants, the 8 male and 11 female participants bring a total of 17 nationalities into the programme and their countries of origin are as far as Singapore, Thailand, and the Russian Federation. Scholars are paired with 17 participating labs this year at LMU Munich, MPI Institutes, and TUM in Munich.


The programme started with our traditional Opening Retreat in Spitzing, where scholars were introduced to the LMU site staff, affiliated faculty, and relevant research topics, before joining the labs this week.

We wish all scholars an inspiring and fruitful summer!
