At Amgen, our mission is to serve patients. We dedicate our days to turning the tide on serious, life – interrupting illnesses – pushing the boundaries of science to transform medicine. Founded in 1980 in Thousand Oaks, California during the dawn of biotechnology, the company was created around a simple idea – that emerging research in biology could lead to meaningful advances if the right scientists could be assembled and given the appropriate resources. Since then, Amgen has grown to be one of the world’s leading biotechnology companies, deeply rooted in science and innovation and focused on helping patients with serious illness. Amgen has a significant manufacturing, commercial, and philanthropic footprint in Ireland. The commercial operation in Santry, Dublin is dedicated to bringing our medicines to Irish patients and was established in 2003.
