The Amgen Foundation has selected EDC to be the Program Office for Amgen Biotech Experience, an innovative science education program that provides a real-world biotech lab experience to middle and high school students. EDC will support the program and facilitate its continued development in the United States and the United Kingdom. Rebecca Lewis (shown at left) will head up the Program Office for EDC.

In 2013, the Amgen Foundation provided grants to community colleges, universities, and nonprofit organizations that serve as Program Sites for the Amgen Biotech Experience in the United States, including Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom. To date, the Amgen Biotech Experience has reached more than 300,000 students.
