Dr. Catherine Brisson
When Dr. Catherine Brisson was 14 years old she did not like biology at all. But one Christmas her mother gave her a medical dictionary, which is where her love of biology started. Thanks to her mom and that dictionary, Catherine is a veterinarian today!
Bree-Ann Lightfoot and Dr. Lisa Hodges
Bree-Ann Lightfoot and Dr. Lisa Hodges work together at the Dartmouth Laboratory where they perform species identification testing of fish and fish products to confirm that companies are accurately labelling their products.
Dr. Mireille Marcotte
Watch out for the full moon because that is when mosquitoes are more likely to bite! While mosquitoes can definitely bug you, Dr. Mireille Marcotte explains how it is actually the Asian longhorned beetle that is the invasive pest Canadians need to watch out for.
Dr. Susan Nadin-Davis
As a research scientist, Susan develops tests for bacteria and viruses. Her work in the Ottawa Laboratory (Fallowfield) helps reduce the impact of diseases, such as rabies, in animal populations and limits the chance of them spreading to people.
Dr. Ruojing Wang
From a very young age, Ruojing has always been fascinated by plants, and now works at the Saskatoon Laboratory to detect and identify their seeds to prevent the spread of unwanted plants in Canada.
Dr. Hana Weingartl
With over 30 years as a scientist, Hana has taken the opportunity to share her knowledge and experience as a teacher in the classroom and in the lab as the head of special pathogens unit at the Winnipeg Laboratory.
Dr. Émilie Larocque
Émilie Larocque's work at the CFIA's Saint-Hyacinthe Laboratory is focused on finding and identifying food viruses that affect our food. It is her passion for science that drives her to find solutions to keep our food safe.
Anna-Mary started out as a photographer, but her desire to discover nature led her to become a scientist at the Sidney Laboratory who works to keep Canada's grapevines and fruit safe.
