THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., July 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- From July 18-20, more than 260 of the country's brightest undergraduate students met at UCLA for the third annual Amgen Scholars U.S. Symposium designed to bring together program participants and help them apply their science research experiences into future science careers.
