In 2011, while running a highly successful consulting business, he became an associate professor at the Université de Sherbrooke. Marc received numerous awards, including the American Chemical Society Heroes of Chemistry Award in 2003. Marc was a coauthor of nearly 100 patents and research articles.”—Tim Cushing, friend and colleague
