Lambert received his bachelor's and master's degrees in life sciences and technology from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (Switzerland). After a research internship at Lausanne University Hospital under Professor Giuseppe Pantaleo, he joined the lab of Professor Melody Swartz as a master's student. His master's thesis was entitled “Mechanisms of MHCII expression in lymph node stromal cells.” He then started his PhD in biotechnology and bioengineering in the same lab. He is now a visiting PhD student at the University of Chicago where he carries on his research on immunomodulatory functions of lymphatic endothelial cells.
