Jonathan loves epigenetics and loves teaching. And he loves trying his hand at new things and learning new skills. Having had a fairly straightforward academic journey towards professorship, he is candid about having had moments of disilusionment when he went and tested other waters. Today, his research and his teaching are only made more interesting for it.

Durant son doctorat en biologie cellulaire, il a décroché la bourse Fernand Séguin qui l’a propulsé dans la profession de journaliste et lui a permis de goûter aux différents types de médias et de plateformes. Aujourd’hui, il met ses compétences à profit au sein d’une grande institution universitaire.
