Understanding Life. Transforming Medicine.
Some of the greatest advances in science are taking place now inside Amgen. Watch and hear the stories from the scientists making it happen.
For more than a decade, Amgen scientists have applied innovative research to advance important new therapies for grievous illnesses. Amgen’s heritage in cutting-edge molecular biology has led to the development of protein therapeutics that have transformed the management of anemia, inflammation and cancer.
More recently, Amgen has assembled a multidisciplinary group of chemists and biologists who together approach the challenge of drug discovery using multiple potential therapeutic modalities. This approach allows us to choose the best target for attacking a disease and to use the modality most likely to affect that target. The research program has yielded a heightened understanding of human disease, and innovative new approaches to improving human health.
Our Research and Development (R&D) engine is powered by dedicated, creative scientists who are attracted to Amgen by our intellectual vigor, our commitment to world-class research and most importantly, by the many opportunities we offer to make a dramatic difference in the lives of patients.
