Sad News From Scynexis

Sad and bad news for the RTP scientific community this week, as Scynexis laid off 12 people this week.

Now in the grand scheme of things maybe 12 people is not so many but here it was quite a hit. Scynexis along with GSK are the main employers of organic chemists in the Triangle. Although with cuts at both places now, I am no longer sure who employs the most any more. So that is an indicator of the local job market. More personally, I know many of those laid off and I know it had to have been really hard to let them go. Sad day.

I’m keeping all the folks down there in my thoughts, both inside and outside the company. Good luck to all of them.
