“I am incredibly proud of Madeleine and her accomplishments with the ROBO test. Her dedication and hard work have been instrumental in the success of this project. It is a testament to her expertise and commitment to excellence that she has been nominated to lead the Surveillance Panel. She is a valuable asset to our team and we are fortunate to have her.”
