Primera Bioscience Research Inc. is at a turning point in its collaboration with The Hospital for Sick Children.  Primera has funded $200,000 of the $300,000 project and has postponed the final payment pending agreement on the research strategy.  In the meantime, Primera sold 375,000 common shares at $0.10 per share to arm’s length subscribers — the same price for which common shares were sold under Primera’s 2008 prospectus. The $37,500 gross proceeds will apparently fund Primera’s general and administrative expenses for the next three years.
