Laval, Quebec, September 17, 2019 – Altasciences is pleased to be adding Drs. Andrew Gorman and Sylvia West to their team of clinical veterinarians. Both will play key roles in providing clinical care, research, and surgical support, as well as insight into protocol development.
Dr. Gorman has a DVM from VA-MD College of Veterinary Medicine, Blacksburg, VA, and has experience in animal health in veterinary hospitals, emergency, and research settings. In addition to his previous veterinary role at Columbia University, Dr. Gorman was an active participant in the IACUC and contributed to the commissioning of Columbia’s largest vivarium.
