Part 15

NW: Jim, we're not firing but we are hiring.

DM: Yeah, as a matter of fact, in 2008, we were one of the only Canadian biotech company
that did not let staff go. Not a single person.

NW: Not a single person.

DM: Right now, if you go to our website, we're hiring three Ph.D./M.D. level individuals. So
we are expanding right now.

NW: We're expanding.

DM: We're pretty bullish on the technologies that we have and what we can
do with them.

NW: Nobody's quit, and we're hiring.
