The turbulent times of last year were marked with hope at the readiness of the Pfizer vaccine. One of VCA’s own, Matthew R. Gutman, DVM, DACVR of VCA SouthPaws VA, played an integral part in research and development of the vaccine. Generating a scoring protocol for pulmonary lesions using CTs and radiographs of primates, Dr. Gutman contributed to the Pfizer landmark paper on the mRNA COVID vaccine, published in Nature, the acclaimed research journal. We are proud of Dr. Gutman and his work, which has had a huge impact on the development and understanding of this important aspect of vaccine development.
