Novartis is scaling down its push to develop RNA therapies. BioCentury reports that the drugmaker plans to “maintain a small group in the field and will look into partnering opportunities” but will “significantly reduce” its internal focus.

According to BioCentury, the drugmaker said RNA treatments look to be a narrow field and that the company expects to lay off some of the 26 employees dedicated to RNA research.
