Ramesh leaves lab for Avid Radiopharmaceuticals

We are both happy and sad to announce that Ramesh has left the lab for a position at Avid.  Ramesh was one of the first members of the lab and over the years has contributed enormously to our radiochemistry efforts.  We'll certainly cross paths many times over what is sure to be a very successful career at Avid for Ramesh.
