Personal profile

Professional Information

Professor Singh’s group works on fundamental mechanism of epigenetics. His aim is to dissect the reprogramming process and his recent work has shown that “age” reprogramming, where the age of an old cell is “re-set”, is separable from “developmental” reprogramming where the specialized functions of a cell are “wiped clean” and returned back to an embryonic, pluripotent, state. His group is working towards developing technologies for rejuvenating cells without the need to pass through an embryonic stage, which is obligatory using current methods of rejuvenating cell function.
