Amgen Launches Program To Further Advance Basic Biology Research

More than 1,000 tools and resources made available to academic institutions including small molecules, peptides, antibodies and recombinant proteins, engineered cell lines, and genetically-engineered mice.

These are tools created to support discovery activities throughout Amgen’s history and have been extensively validated in most cases. Amgen scientists and staff assembled these materials and have organized pertinent information into a searchable catalog. This catalog is available to designated institutions. Amgen will provide the materials on request as a donation to the cause of basic science—with no claim to ownership of intellectual property to discoveries that may ensue. As specific materials are depleted, Amgen anticipates others will be added so that AmBER continues as an evolving resource for academics.
