The Amgen Biotech Experience (ABE) San Francisco/Bay Area is funded by the Amgen Foundation. However, the program is made possible through the generosity and support of numerous organizations and individuals in addition to the Amgen Foundation. We would like to acknowledge the following:
The Amgen Foundation seeks to advance excellence in science education to inspire the next generation of innovators, and invest in strengthening communities where Amgen staff members live and work. To date, the Foundation has donated over $250 million in grants to local, regional and international nonprofit organizations that impact society in inspiring and innovative ways. In addition to the Amgen Biotech Experience, the Amgen Foundation brings the excitement of discovery to the scientists of tomorrow through several signature programs, including Amgen Scholars and Amgen Teach.
