An NDSU senior is conducting research at the National Institutes of Health through the prestigious Amgen Scholars Program.
The Amgen Foundation selected Angel Mfon, who is majoring in psychology, to spend 10 weeks this summer conducting hands-on research at the National Institute of Mental Health. She was among 340 students selected globally from about 5,000 applicants.
Mfon, who is from St. Paul, Minnesota, is active in NDSU African Student Union. She also is an undergraduate student member of the Institutional Review Board.
The Amgen Scholars also attended a symposium at UCLA as an opportunity to network with students from other institutions, share research projects, learn about biotechnology and hear from leading industry and academic scientists.
As a student-focused, land-grant, research university, we serve our citizens.
