Terence Menard


I served an apprenticeship as a mechanical fitter with Otis Elevator Company Limited, Liverpool between 1966 and 1970.

After a spell as a residential voluntary social worker, I came to work in Switzerland in a Canadian company dealing with pilot studies on the susceptibility of minerals to magnetic stimulation.

I moved to the University Hospital Zurich, Dept. of Pathology where I prepared and examined human tissue for signs of metabolic or neurodegenerative diseases using transmission electron microscopy.

After 11 years I came to the WSL in 2002 where I'm employed as a technician - specifically for microscopy.

Field of work

My work focuses on the preparation of plant material for histochemical investigation,

and microscopy.


Married with two daughters born in 1991 and 1994.

I've been a member of the Zurich Comedy Club, an English speaking theatre group with a membership of around 130 and established in 1954  for nearly 30 years, presently serving as the club's President. I've appeared on stage many times, worked as stage manager and have designed and recorded the sound plot for most of our plays since 1990 .
