- Researchgr. Nucleaire Geneeskunde
Marnix Lam (1975) studied Pharmaceutical sciences (passed with distinction) and Medicine at Utrecht University. He became a resident in Nuclear Medicine, respectively Radiology and finalized his PhD thesis (2009) on radionuclide therapy in prostate cancer patients with metastatic bone pain. This was followed by a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University School of Medicine, USA. In 2016 he was appointed Professor of Nuclear Medicine.
Translational research in molecular medicine has been the scope of his scientific work, with a focus on oncology. Bringing new radiopharmaceuticals to clinical practice. This specifically resulted in the introduction of new oncological treatment modalities in the Netherlands, such as bone seeking radiopharmaceuticals for the palliation of metastatic bone pain (Sm-153-EDTMP, Re-188-HEDP) and radioembolization for treatment of hepatic malignancies (Y-90 and Ho-166 microspheres). Current research is focussed on dosimetry of therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals, image-guided treatment technology, alfa- and beta-emitting isotopes for therapeutic purposes, intra-arterial and intra-tumor treatment approaches, and radio-immunotherapy.
