Remembering Professor Paul-Pierre Pastoret....

Professor Pastoret was an international figure in the veterinary science field who sadly passed away on 19 April 2015. His development of the recombinant vaccinia-rabies vectored vaccines used for the oral vaccination of wildlife played a major role in the elimination of terrestrial rabies across many Western European Countries and in the United states.
