Inflammation associated with Heliobacter pylori-induced gastric carcinogenesis Other events...
Samuel Lundin is a Visiting Professor at the Marshall Center for Infectious Diseases Research and Training. He received his PhD in 1998 from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, where he worked on T-cell regulation of immunity and tolerance to food antigens. This was followed by joining the group of Prof Ann-Mari Svennerholm, also in Gothenburg, where he studied gastric immunity to Helicobacter pylori. Dr Lundin remained at the University of Gothenburg and set up his own group where he has continued working on immune regulation in relation to disease development in H. pylori-infected individuals harbor gastric CD4+CD25high Treg that suppress the T-cell response to the bacterium. During recent years the Lundin group has focused the research on mechanisms for stomach cancer development due to H. pylori infection. He has established biobanks of samples from H. pylori infected patients from both Sweden and Nicaragua, in order to study the stomach transcriptome in individuals with gastric precancerous conditions. In September 2014, Dr Lundin became a EU Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Western Australia, pursuing a project that will search for immunological serum biomarkers for early stomach cancer.
