Same here. I don't think Science Team is guaranteed to immediately remove debuffs on you. It's a pulse on each tick that has a certain chance. Granted a moderate-high chance, but still has a chance to fail on each pulse. I've had it remove VM so fast, that I didn't even get the pink clouds on me when it hit me. And I've had it hold me for 8-10 seconds before it either ran out or got removed. It's RNG. Not a big deal. There's other, more guaranteed ways to avoid taking dmg in a VM.
