A radiochemist by training, Dr. Lambert received a Ph.D in chemistry from the University of Liège.
Dr. Lambert stated, “I am delighted to be joining Telix at such an exciting time in the growth of the business and it is a personal pleasure to be part of completing the commercialization of girentuximab-based imaging.
