Drugs giant Pfizer is to retain around 350 jobs at the site of its doomed leading UK research centre, it has been announced. The firm said in February that more than 2,000 jobs would be lost in up to two years' time following the closure of its renowned research and development (R&D) facility in Sandwich, Kent. But now Pfizer has announced that it will retain a partial pharmaceutical sciences operation, while continuing its phased exit of the rest of the site by the end of 2012.
