Alphabet’s life-sciences subsidiary Verily is laying off 15% of staff, or roughly 250 people, according to an internal memo reviewed by The Information, a move that raises the prospect of job cuts at sister company Google.

In an email to staff Wednesday morning, CEO Stephen Gillett said the company would work on fewer products, including research programs that help accelerate clinical trials and efforts to provide personalized health-care solutions to patients. It will discontinue work on Verily Value Suite, an analytics tool for clinics, as well as earlier-stage projects such as microneedles for drug delivery and remote monitoring of patients for heart failure.
