Procurement Manager (GMP)

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 AMEC New Albany, OH: AmplifyBio’s Manufacturing Enablement Center provides customizable cGMP suites to enable advanced therapy manufacturing in a “hoteling model,” traditional contract development and manufacturing (CDMO) or a hybrid model. Partnering with AmplifyBio for manufacturing cell therapy, gene therapy, mRNA, plasmid, or other modality is quite different from a typical CDMO experience. The goal is to provide flexible solutions customized to client needs while bringing full expert partnership. At AmplifyBio drug developers will find an innovation-rich ecosystem designed to advance a diverse range and class of pharmaceutical products across development stages.
