Roughly 50 percent of Amgen’s late-stage pipeline comes from external innovation. The Amgen’s Business Development team plays a critical role in expanding the company's growth by identifying outside ideas with strong commercial potential  that target Amgen’s mission to cure serious illnesses.

The talk will be presented by Mr. Syed Kazmi, Executive Director of Transactions, Amgen Business Development. The Business Development Team interfaces with external innovators, fund early stage work through Amgen Ventures, and integrates new partners and concepts into the Amgen overall strategy.
