Amgen is committed to unlocking the potential of biology for patients suffering from serious illnesses by discovering, developing, manufacturing and delivering innovative human therapeutics. Amgen's medicines treat serious illnesses. We have a presence in more than 75 countries worldwide and have reached millions of people in the fight against cancer, kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, bone disease and other serious illnesses. Our 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.

The Role of Amgen's Drug Substance Technologies (DST) Organization is to deliver robust processes and technologies for the manufacture of Drug Substance/Active Pharmaceutical ingredient from early to late stage development, and serve our R&D, Clinical and Commercial partners.
