Roche has done little more than draw up a list of requirements for a new clinical research center it wants to put somewhere on the East Coast — the potential silver lining in a restructuring that will shut down the drugmaker’s landmark campus in Nutley and cost New Jersey hundreds of jobs. The proposed center — so early in the planning that a search team is still being assembled — quickly attracted the attention of economic development officials from Trenton to Boston who are ready to woo Roche --- or in New Jersey's case, keep it.
