At the end of February 2019, Dr. Lundy was forced to close his lab at the University of Michigan Medical School due to insufficient funding. He has since taken a position as a Principal Scientist at SystImmune, a biotech company in Redmond, Washington that specializes in cancer immunotherapy. He maintains an Adjunct Associate Professor appointment at the University of Michigan and can still be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of our mission to promote immunology education, Dr. Lundy has written an introductory article aimed at 8-15 year old kids. The article introduces the topics of interactions between microbes and the immune system, and how vaccines work. Below is a link to the article entitled “The Immune System in Sickness and in Health-Part 1: Microbes and Vaccines” published in Frontiers for Young Minds on Sept. 10, 2018.
Our work that is being sponsored by the Mary H. Weiser Food Allergy Center was mentioned in an article about the MHWFAC that appeared in the latest issue of Michigan Medicine.

Sophina earned a one-year research fellowship to support her work on regulatory B cells in allergic airway disease from the American Association of Immunologists (AAI). This caps a great year for her in which she has made significant progress on her dissertation research, was coauthor on a paper in Neurology: Neuroimmunology and Neuroinflammation and was invited to give a platform talk at the annual meeting of the AAI that took place in Seattle, Washington in May. Congratulations Sophina!!
On Sept. 1, 2016, Dr. Lundy was officially promoted to the position of Associate Professor on the research track in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School. He credits this achievement to hard work, dedication to his scientific and educational goals, perseverance through difficult financial times, the love of his family, and the friendship and support and many wonderful colleagues who stood beside him through the toughest of times.
