Dr. Amanda Huber Ph.D. is from a small rural town in Northwest Ohio. She
received her B.S. from Defiance College, Defiance Ohio. She began her
graduate work at the University of Cincinnati in 2005, where she developed her
love for all things immunology. In the lab of Dr. Yaron Tomer her work focused on
the functional impact of a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the CD40
gene in autoimmune thyroid disease. In 2008 she was awarded the Ryan
Fellowship; the highest honor the College of Medicine awards to a graduate
student, recognizing outstanding research accomplishments and potential. In
2009, her lab relocated to Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY. While
here, she received an Outstanding Abstract Award from The Endocrine Society.
In 2011 she earned her Ph.D. degree in the Biomedical Sciences in the training
area of Immunology from Mount Sinai School of Medicine. From NY she moved
to Ann Arbor, Michigan where she completed a postdoctoral fellow in the Holtom-
Garrett Program in Neuro-immunology at the University of Michigan under the
mentorship of Drs. Benjamin Segal and David Irani. Her research focused on
serum biomarkers in different forms of the demyelinating autoimmune disease
multiple sclerosis (MS) and in finding factors that contributed to differential
therapeutic outcomes to IFN-β in MS. In May 2018 Dr. Huber joined the Levi
laboratory to study the role of the innate immune cell, the macrophage, in the
pathogenesis of Heterotopic Ossification. In her time in the Levi lab Dr. Huber
has published in Bone, Nature Communications, and the Journal of Clinical
In her free time, Amanda likes to do home improvement projects, spend time with
her three dogs Hayley, Scarlet, and Buckeye (obviously still a Buckeye at heart),
and spend time hanging out with family and friends. And while she didn’t make
the move with the Levi Lab to Dallas, she is still happy to be a satellite part of the
Levi Lab family.
