One of the world's largest manufacturers of cancer treatment devices and software, Palo Alto-based Varian Medical Systems, opened its East Coast hub in Atlanta Monday. The company plans to add up to 100 technical jobs.
The new office is meant to help an Atlanta start-up, Velocity Medical Solutions, which was bought by Varian in 2014.
Varian Medical Systems has had an office in Marietta since the 1980s.
Velocity was started by researchers at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University and received early funding from the Georgia Research Alliance.
