Roche to move out of Palo Alto

Palo Alto may have to say goodbye to as many as 3,000 jobs. According to the San Francisco Business Times, Roche is planning to move its inflammation business from Palo Alto to Nutley, NJ and its virology ops--also at Palo Alto--to South San Francisco. The company will also move U.S. pharmaceutical commercial operations from its New Jersey site to South San Francisco--the home of 8,000 Genentech employees. Article
