The department of PKDM within Amgen is dedicated to the discovery and development of safe and effective medicines by elucidating the absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and pharmacokinetic properties of novel therapeutic drug candidates to improve their pharmacological potential. PKDM works in close partnership with disciplines such as protein science, pharmacology, toxicology, pharmaceutical sciences, clinical pharmacology and regulatory to engineer promising clinical therapeutic candidates, conduct preclinical development studies, support clinical evaluation and contribute to IND and NDA filings.
Develop and routinely employ bioanalytical methods for the quantitative and qualitative analysis of new protein/mAb entities in plasma, tissues, and other biological matrices, as well as, interpret and provide bioanalytical results to project team representatives in support of drug discovery and development.
Independently design and execute experiments to quantitate molecular entities by immunoassay (ELISA, Gyros, MSD) in support of both drug discovery and early development programs.
