British drug maker AstraZeneca PLC today announced a $100 million expansion of its Waltham facility to boost research and development of drugs that treat cancer and infectious diseases.

The expansion will create up to 100 new scientific jobs on top of the 400 employees who now work at the site.

Construction on the 132,000-square-foot expansion is expected to start within the next couple months and be completed by mid-2009. It will increase the Waltham facility to 382,000 square feet.
