Dr. Singh received his Bachelors of Engineering (B.E) in Polymer Engineering from Birla Institute of Technology, Ranchi, India (2001), his Masters of Technology (M.Tech) from Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi, India (2003) and his Ph. D in Polymer Science from the University of Akron, Ohio, USA (2008). He was a Maryland Stem Cell Research Foundation postdoctoral fellow (MSCRF, 2010-12) and an Arthritis Foundation (AF, 2012-14) postdoctoral fellow at the Translational Tissue Engineering Center, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University. Before, his postdoctoral research fellowships, he worked in General Electric (GE), now SABIC-IP, as a product developer (2008-09). Dr. Singh joined the Department of Urology, Brady Urological Institute, at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine as an instructor in 2014 and as a full time Assistant Professor since July 1st, 2015 with a secondary appointment in the Dept. of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Johns Hopkins University.
Dr. Singh’s research interest is in finding clinically relevant simple solutions to complex health problems through translational scientific and engineering approaches. One of the main goals of his research group is “Regenerative Urology”, where the research is focused on design, fabrication and development of mechanically and biologically functional urinary tissues and organs, such as urinary diversion conduit, ureter and bladder. His group applies major themes including, biomaterials, polymer chemistry, stem cell and tissue engineering for regenerating tissues/organs, specifically urological tissues and organs, musculoskeletal and ocular tissues. His group also studies a variety of biomaterials-based deployment strategies that provide spatiotemporal delivery of biologics, including peptides, cells, nanomaterials, polymers and small molecules to augment endogenous repair responses and target degenerative diseases.
