He holds a doctorate (Ph.D.) in molecular biology from the University of Montreal. He later worked as a post-doctoral fellow and research associate at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute in Toronto. During his career, he uncovered new molecular signalling networks that regulate the nervous system’s development and degeneration. He later obtained his LL.B. in civil law at the University of Montreal and joined the Centre of Genomics and Policy as an academic associate with an interest in law and bioethics, specifically genomic medicine and genetic discrimination.
