I am currently a third-year undergraduate student at the Department of Biosciences, Faculty of Science, UTM. I have had the privilege to participate in the prestigious research internship program called the Amgen Scholars Program at Kyoto University in Japan, which was held from 10th June till 5th August 2019. Amgen is a multinational biopharmaceutical company which is based in California. The company provides opportunities for undergraduates from all over the world to conduct research at world-class institutions in the US, Europe, Asia and recently in Australia and Canada too through the Amgen Scholars Program. It is an international program funded by the Amgen Foundation with direction and technical assistance provided by Harvard University. The program accepts applications for internship in “any disciplines related to the discovery, development, manufacture and delivery of human therapeutics, as well as the overall biomedical and biotechnology enterprise”.
