Expertise

Research, Clinical, and/or Academic Interests

  • Tissue nanotransfection, electroceutical infection management, nanomedicine and bioinformatics with the aim to develop a simple and point-of-care approach to achieve targeted epigenetic editing of adult diabetic ischemic tissue in vivo‚Äč
  • The molecular mechanism in diabetic vasculopathy and limb ischemia, employing tissue nanotransfection technology as a delivery platform to administer combination gene therapy for diabetic ischemic limb rescue

Dr. Singh’s laboratory focuses on epigenetics of diabetic vasculopathy and wound healing.

His laboratory is investigating epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation as a proxy for abnormal gene–environmental interactions in diabetic ischemic wounds.
