Takeda Pharmaceuticals has acquired Envoy Therapeutics in a deal that will add 20 biotech jobs in La Jolla, where the firm focuses on cancer, immunology and metabolic diseases. Terms of the acquisition were not announced. Takeda consolidated its San Francisco and La Jolla operations earlier this year, bringing the company's total workforce locally to about 200. Now comes the deal for Florida-based Envoy, which will move its scientific staff and drug discovery technologies and pipeline to San Diego County.
