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.
