MONKLANDS is this week celebrating a much-needed jobs boost. The site of the former MSD/Organon research facility in Chapelhall will be transformed into a dedicated base for bioscience, pharmaceutical, and healthcare companies, creating hundreds of new jobs. And John Swinney, the cabinet secretary for finance, employment and sustainable growth will make the announcement at the Bo’ness Road site today (Wednesday). The joint venture between BioCity Nottingham and Roslin BioCentre has been enabled by the gifting of the site to BioCity Scotland by former occupants MSD (operating in the US and Canada as Merck & Co).
