THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Amgen (Nasdaq: AMGN) announced today that Roger M. Perlmutter, M.D., Ph. D., Amgen's executive vice president of Research & Development, has been elected a 2009 Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Each year the AAAS Council elects members whose "efforts on behalf of the advancement of science or its applications are scientifically or socially distinguished."

Perlmutter is being honored "for distinguished contributions leading to a more detailed understanding of signaling pathways controlling lymphocyte development and activation and to the discovery and development of novel biotherapeutics," according to AAAS.

Perlmutter joined Amgen as head of Research & Development in 2001 and over the past decade has led the company's effort to develop a robust pipeline that focuses on novel therapeutics to treat serious illnesses. With more than 50 molecules in development, the majority of which target pathways that have not previously been addressed in humans, Amgen's pipeline includes potential new treatments for cancer, asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and many other life-threatening conditions.

Founded in 1848, AAAS is an international nonprofit professional association dedicated to advancing science, engineering and innovation around the world. AAAS publishes the peer-reviewed journal Science, as well as scientific newsletters, books and reports, and spearheads programs that raise the bar of understanding for science worldwide.
