James.Lund_hiresTo say that James Lund arrived at McGill at a crucial moment in the history of the Faculty of Dentistry might qualify as an understatement—the faculty had come perilously close to being shut down just a few years earlier. Lund served as the dean of dentistry from 1995 to 2008 and, under his leadership, the faculty underwent an impressive revitalization, particularly on the research front. Lund played a leading role in the establishment of several multidisciplinary centres at McGill, including the Centre for Bone and Periodontal Research, the Centre for Biorecognition and Biosensors and the Alan Edwards Centre for Research on Pain. “Jim was the motor behind the recruitment of many world-class faculty members at McGill,” says dentistry professor Catherine Bushnell. Lund died on December 8, 2009.
