Introduction to the Amgen Biotech Experience

Blog

In an era of unprecedented innovation, the Amgen Biotech Experience (ABE) brings hands-on biotech curricula into classrooms worldwide at no cost. In this rigorous lab-based program, students will learn to create recombinant plasmids. By inserting new genes into bacterial DNA, they will recreate the process that Amgen uses to manufacture human insulin and other life-saving medications. ABE is currently offered in 20 regions across Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America.
