She held postdoctoral positions at the Department of Pathology at the University of São Paulo - Medical School, from 2007 to 2008 and at Dr. Janet Foley’s Laboratory in Infectious Disease, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of California, Davis, in 2011. Mary worked in the Department of Clinical Medicine, Surgery and Animal Reproduction in the School of Veterinary Medicine at UNESP, Araçatuba, São Paulo State, from 1992 to 2018. During her academic career she was a member of the Board of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital from 2000 to 2001 and from 2004 to 2008, Director of the Undergraduate Committee in Veterinary Medicine from 2000 to 2004, Head of the Department of Clinical Medicine, Surgery and Animal Reproduction from 2013 to 2015, a member of the Board of the Postgraduate Programme from 2013 to 2016 and Vice-Dean of the School of Veterinary Medicine from 2015 to 2018. Mary taught Small Animal Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases in the UNESP graduate student programmes. Mary’s research interests include vector-borne and emerging infectious diseases, particularly canine and feline leishmaniasis. Currently, she is a member of the WSAVA Vaccination Guidelines Group (VGG), the Co-Chair of the Scientific Committee of WSAVA, a member of the AFSCAN Project Board, and a member of the Companion Vector-Borne Diseases (CVBD) World Forum. She continues an active programme of delivering continuing education in vaccinology and management of vector-borne infectious diseases in Latin America.
The webinar will cover the types of vaccines, classification of vaccines as core and non-core, the reasoning behind the use of multiple vaccines in primary vaccination of puppies and kittens related to the blocking effects of maternally-derived antibody (MDA) against vaccine antigens, revaccination protocols based on the duration of immunity (DOI) and the use of serological testing to assist with decision making on vaccination (whether a pup has responded to primary vaccination, whether an animal that has previously suffered an adverse reaction to vaccination requires revaccination, to determine the best vaccination protocol for an adult dog with ‘lapsed’ vaccination or of unknown vaccination history) and to reduce vaccine load in an individual animal.
