NBC -- A Bozeman pharmaceutical company is hoping it will be able to expand in the next couple years, a move some in the community think could potentially bring hundreds of jobs over the next couple of years.

Sen. Max Baucus announced on Monday, LigoCyte Pharmaceuticals is taking the steps to see if it would be viable for the company to build a manufacturing facility in Bozeman.

The company is developing a vaccine to fight back against the Norovirus, the virus responsible for the common stomach flu. The vaccine is currently going through clinical trials, and is being manufactured on the east coast.
