Giguere 13

It is with the utmost sadness that the College of Veterinary Medicine must announce the passing of our beloved colleague, Dr. Steeve Giguère. Steeve was Professor and Marguerite Hodgson Chair in Equine Studies in the Department of Large Animal Medicine. He passed away unexpectedly on Sunday in an accident at his home.

Steeve's honesty, dedication, mentorship, and generosity – coupled with his expertise in the equine field – shaped the knowledge, training and careers of so many of his current and former students and colleagues. He will be greatly missed throughout the CVM and the entire profession. We extend our deepest sympathies to his wife, Myriam Bélanger, a research scientist in the CVM’s Department of Infectious Diseases, and his daughters, Kim and Kelly.
