General Description of Organization and/or Areas of Expertise:

Amgen is committed to unlocking the potential of biology for patients suffering from serious illnesses by discovering, developing, manufacturing and delivering innovative human therapeutics. This approach begins by using tools like advanced human genetics to unravel the complexities of disease and understand the fundamentals of human biology.

Amgen focuses on areas of high unmet medical need and leverages its expertise to strive for solutions that improve health outcomes and dramatically improve people’s lives.  Amgen’s medicines typically address diseases for which the number of effective treatment options is limited, or they are medicines that provide a viable option to what is otherwise available.  Amgen focuses on six therapeutic areas: oncology/hematology, cardiovascular, disease, inflammation, bone health, nephrology and neuroscience.

A biotechnology pioneer since 1980, Amgen has grown to be one of the world’s leading independent biotechnology companies, has reached millions of patients around the world and is developing a pipeline of medicines with breakaway potential.
