Sirtris is leaving Kendall Square to relocate to Philadelphia

Sirtris Pharmaceuticals, a Cambridge company that is looking to develop potential treatments for age-related diseases, partly by using proteins similar to those found in red wine, is being relocated to Philadelphia by its corporate parent, giant drug maker GlaxoSmithKline.

Melinda Stubbee, a GlaxoSmithKline spokeswoman, confirmed the move Tuesday. Sirtris has 60 employees in Cambridge. A yet-to-be-determined number of those employees will be re-assigned to Philadelphia, likely by late spring, she said.
