Doctor W. Clark Lambert has worked very closely with the XP Society, providing care for a number of XP patients, most fro other countries where expert care is lacking. Many patients and their caregivers have come to know Doctor Lambert at Camp Sundown where he has been a guest lecturer every year. He is frequently assisted at these Camp Sundown sessions by his wife Professor Muriel W. Lambert, also a researcher in fields closely related to xeroderma pigmentosum.
W. Clark Lambert is in final stages of opening a laboratory for diagnosis of xeroderma pigmentosum. The final hurdle is a lack of funding. This is a high priority fund raising goal of the XP Society.
