Adaptive Biotechnologies has a new CFO. Tycho Peterson comes from JP Morgan Chase, where he most recently served in her healthcare group as managing director, life science tools and diagnostics.

The announcement comes a day after Adaptive laid off 12% of its workforce, or about 100 people. The previous CFO, Chad Cohen, stepped down in February after seven years with the company; he was previously CFO of Zillow Group.

Adaptive sells kits to detect COVID-19, “minimal residual disease” for blood cancers, and it partners with vaccine makers and other biopharma companies. It is undergoing a reorganization to focus on two business units: minimal residual disease and immune medicine, said CEO Chad Robins in a message to employees Tuesday announcing the layoffs.
