Lungu's research project is on protective immunity against TB. The theme of the study originated from the observations he made in his MMED study where he observed that certain population mount a robust immune response that prevents TB infection.

He is driven by the desire to make a difference and the belief that through research on protective immunity, we can develop a more potent vaccine that is protective against pulmonary TB and eventually help end TB.
