The MedZilla Report: Febraury 2009 Employment Outlook for Biotech/Pharma/Health
Date:3/30/2009

After the flood of layoffs in health care in January, the industry seems to have taken a deep breath and a step back, getting back on track and creating 27,000 new jobs. Health care job cuts that were announced were mostly due to the overall economic difficulty facing the United States.

"The bigger hit this month unfortunately came from biotech and pharmaceuticals, which have both seen difficulties over the past 18 months." While most of those companies announced layoffs in conjunction with reorganizations, strategic shifts, and other cost-cutting measures, some, such as Trubion Pharmaceuticals, said they are eliminating positions "in the face of continuing uncertainty in the capital markets and the global economy." (Puget Sound Business Journal, February 25, 2009) Hopps said that these companies often see difficulty due to the need to specialize. "They develop drugs that might fail in clinical trials or the regulatory phase, and that's a lot of money gone toward something that won't show a return on the investment."
