Alice Heicklen: Enriching the Amgen Scholars Experience at Columbia

Blog

To design and execute a summer research program like Amgen Scholars is no easy feat. The 10-week program at Columbia University and Barnard College in New York requires year-round planning to nail down faculty lectures, laboratory tours, graduate student and career panels, housing, flights, social events, and seminars in science communication.

On a January morning, a team of Amgen scientists traveled to the University of Southern California to spend time with 10,000 young women from Los Angeles County schools through the LA Promise Fund’s Girls Build LA Initiative. Amgen’s “Selfie with a Scientist” booth provided a forum for a few of our female scientists to interact with an eager, bright and inspiring group of young women. With a line around the corner, the students tried on lab coats, donned safety glasses, and handled models of virus, bacteria, proteins and other biological structures.
