Drug developer AstraZeneca PLC will bring more than 350 California employees together in the massive Cove at Oyster Point development in South San Francisco, the company said Tuesday. It comes as Big Pharma players, including Merck & Co. Inc., scout local sites in an effort to cozy up to hot, young Bay Area drug developers . The Cove, now in the second phase of construction by HCP Inc. at Highway 101 and Oyster Point Boulevard, already has landed high-profile biotech startups, such as neurodegenerative drug developer Denali Therapeutics Inc. and cancer drug maker CytomX Therapeutics Inc.

The $3 billion health initiative set up by Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan has hired one of AstraZeneca's non-executive directors to head up its science drive. The British drugmaker said on Wednesday that Cornelia Bargmann would step down from its board next month to take up a new role as president of Chan Zuckerberg Science, part of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Leif Johansson, AstraZeneca's chairman, said the board was sorry to see her leave but understood Bargmann's decision to focus on the new assignment.
