EMA los­es more than 100 staffers in move to Am­s­ter­dam

Fol­low­ing its Brex­it-re­lat­ed de­par­ture from Lon­don, the Eu­ro­pean Med­i­cines Agency’s (EMA) staff has been re­duced from 897 staffers to 775, EMA said Fri­day in an up­date from a board meet­ing in its new home in Am­s­ter­dam.

Al­though an Oc­to­ber EMA man­age­ment board up­date said the agency’s staff num­bers were down to 730, the uptick comes as a 2017 re­port said that UK ex­perts made up 15% of the EMA’s ex­pert base and con­duct­ed about 20% of its sci­en­tif­ic work.
