Barrick's Chief Sustainability Officer, Peter Sinclair (centre), accepts a thank-you plaque from Dr. Bradly Wouters (left) and Greg Lichti, Vice President, Development, Princess Margaret Hospital.
A team of doctors from the Princess Margaret Hospital, one of the top five cancer research centres in the world, visited Barrick’s head office in Toronto to speak to employees about the ground-breaking research they are conducting. Their research is made possible thanks in part to a donation from Barrick and five other Canadian gold mining companies that the hospital received in 2014.
Dr. Mathieu Lupien, Dr. Bradly Wouters, and Greg Lichti, Vice President, Development for the Toronto-based hospital thanked Barrick and its employees for their ongoing support of the hospital. Dr. Lupien walked Barrick people through his ground-breaking research in epigenetics, which studies the role that genes play in cancer, and how they can be switched on or off to combat cancer.
