Amgen's new 245,000 square-foot R&D lab in San Francisco's Oyster Point

R&D ac­cel­er­a­tion: Am­gen opens its sec­ond largest re­search site, with lab and of­fice space for 650 staff

Am­gen has fa­mous­ly been called a law firm with a biotech com­pa­ny at­tached to it. And now that biotech at­tach­ment will have sig­nif­i­cant­ly more room to de­vel­op and grow.

Right next to Genen­tech’s 1 DNA Way in south San Fran­cis­co, Am­gen on Thurs­day opened the doors to a new 245,000-square-foot build­ing that will be filled with about 650 staff work­ing to dis­cov­er drugs to treat can­cer, in­flam­ma­to­ry dis­eases and car­diometa­bol­ic dis­or­ders.
