Are you passionate about significantly improving the future of medicine? Do you believe that people are the most important asset of any company? If so, join AmplifyBio!

AmplifyBio is a leading contract research organization with a comprehensive range of services that span from being an outsourcing partner for discovery stage R&D work, a preclinical CRO performing safety efficacy and toxicology studies for small molecules and advanced therapies alike, and, most recently, an expansion into manufacturing services for cell, gene, and mRNA-based therapeutics.

The AmplifyBio ecosystem is comprised of three distinct business units: ADOC (South San Francisco, CA)– Amplify’s Discovery, Optimization, and Characterization laboratories: ASET (West Jefferson, OH) – Amplify’s Safety, Efficacy, and Toxicology Site; and the most recently opened AMEC (New Albany, OH) – Amplify’s Manufacturing Enablement Center. 

About ASET West Jefferson, OH: AmplifyBio’s safety, efficacy, and toxicology unit (ASET) was launched as a preclinical CRO that spun out of Battelle in 2021 to address the changing needs of commercial organizations developing modern therapeutics. AmplifyBio brings decades of experience to accommodate a wide variety of GLP and non-GLP studies in all in vivo models and dose routes. Among the investments that AmplifyBio has made to empower preclinical assessments of advanced therapies is building a new state-of-the-art analytical laboratory to include molecular and immunological assays that assess critical safety and efficacy indicators for cell and gene therapies during preclinical studies.
