Amgen leaders handpicked accessible, inclusive and engaging LabXchange content to get you started with this incredible resource. With 18,000+ pieces of content across 14 formats, there’s something for every science lover on LabXchange!
The Amgen Foundation's ongoing commitment to LabXchange is paving the way for a better future for us all, providing best-in-class science education at no cost to students globally.
Check out Amgen leaders’ recommendations and see for yourself what this platform has to offer!
LabXchange has developed dozens of “scrollable interactives,” which are short online lessons that users can explore at their own pace, perfect for digging into a molecular process or hot topic in biotech. So proud that the Amgen Foundation's support of LabXchange is bringing this content to users around the world.
Narratives on LabXchange tell the stories of an individual’s journey in science. I particularly love the way that I Am A Scientist captures a whole-person view of people working in science. I'm excited that I Am A Scientist, LabXchange, and the Amgen Foundation are bringing these amazing stories to users around the world.
Virtual laboratory simulations enable students to authentically engage in the scientific process as both a supplement to hands-on learning and a resource to explore techniques that may be cost-prohibitive in the average science class. The Amgen Foundation is happy to support LabXchange in bringing these powerful learning opportunities to the world.
Representation matters everywhere, including in the field of science. I was encouraged to see hundreds of stories about scientists from all different backgrounds on the platform, sharing challenges they have overcome, opportunities in science that excite them, and bits of advice that they would pass on to the next generation.
At the Amgen Foundation, we're committed to making science and biotechnology accessible to all. One great example is LabXchange’s Foundational Concepts and Techniques in Biotechnology cluster that's been translated into isiZulu, South Africa's largest language group, and is now reaching new communities and schools across southern Africa.
This particular LabXchange simulation has been viewed more than 350,000 times since it was released in 2020! Through the Amgen Foundation's support of LabXchange, users around the world can practice the fundamental technique of gel electrophoresis, an important lab method used to separate macromolecules by their size and charge.
The foundation of science is fact. But what happens if people lie about, manipulate or exclude data? Through the Amgen Foundation's support of LabXchange, there is an opportunity to learn about the consequences of such misconduct, and how research integrity can counter this challenge.
Too many students across the world do not have the opportunity to learn about science and biotechnology in their native language. I'm so proud that through the Amgen Foundation's support of LabXchange, we're breaking down those barriers to access by making simulations and other cutting-edge content available in many languages, including Spanish.
While there are many simulations of individual laboratory techniques available on LabXchange, this particular simulation enables learners to practice their experimental design skills with instant feedback and multiple checkpoints for self-assessment. Through its support of LabXchange, the Amgen Foundation is making it possible for users around the world to engage in the scientific process through this platform.
Over the past three years, PCR has become a part of our everyday lingo. This pathway on LabXchange is a great resource to share with anyone interested in learning more about this ubiquitous laboratory technique, and a powerful example of how learning never stops. I'm thrilled that the Amgen Foundation is supporting these efforts through its support of LabXchange.
I love the content on LabXchange from Our World In Data -- they present data in rich interactive and compelling formats that yield new insights into global challenges. For example, check out this interactive on COVID-19 Vaccine Doses Administered by Country, one of over 300 interactive data visualizations available from this LabXchange content collaborator.
The Amgen Foundation seeks to advance excellence in science education to inspire the next generation of innovators, and invest in strengthening communities where Amgen staff members live and work.
The Amgen Biotech Experience (ABE) is an innovative science education program that empowers teachers to bring biotechnology to their classrooms.
The Amgen Scholars Program aims to open the door to research opportunities at 25 host institutions for undergraduates from any four-year college or university in a given region.
