Redundancies are being made at pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline in Stevenage as part of "a new approach to research and development".
A spokesman for GSK on the Gunnels Wood Road site said “a small number of roles will be directly impacted”.
She said: “Since we announced our new approach to research and development in 2018, the future direction of our portfolio has become clearer, prioritising innovation and moving towards delivering a pipeline of transformational medicines with a focus on immunology, genetically validated targets, and finding platforms and technologies that amplify our science.
“We have identified where changes are necessary to ensure we can fully support our evolving pipeline priorities. We anticipate a small number of roles will be directly impacted by these changes but continue to expect GSK's R&D operations to grow overall with increased investment.”
