Sylvain DeGuise, DMV, PhD
Pathologist

We asked each of our scientists to give us their thoughts on their professions and what they think the future holds for humanity.


What would you recommend for students wanting to pursue a similar career?
Go for it! Be proactive, constructive, imaginative and find the right people to do that with. Do not get discouraged. Persevere. Change or different ideas can be hard to go through but are certainly worth the effort.

What do you like best about your profession?
It allows me to be creative, to think what would be really neat to do, think about how it could be done, exchange with colleagues with complementary expertise and try to get it done!

What makes you most fearful for the future?
People with tunnel vision, who believe what they learned long ago will always be true and who are not open to exciting new perspectives because it does fit their views.

What makes you most hopeful for the future?
Open-minded people. It is really exciting to get students thinking differently from what they are used to, get them excited and help them succeed.
