Kanhaiya Singh, PhD

Assistant Professor of Surgery

IB 450
Indianapolis, IN


Kanhaiya Singh, PhD is an Assistant Professor at the Indiana Center for Regenerative Medicine and Engineering, Indiana University. He did his PhD from Banaras Hindu University, India on Genetic Analysis of impairment of Diabetic Wound Healing. During his Post-doctoral research (September 2015- February 2020) at Ohio State University and Indiana University, he studied epigenetic mechanisms of gene expression under diabetic conditions. He has significant experience in high throughput mass-spectrometric proteomic analysis, including in vitro and in vivo SILAC. His recent works include implications of single-cell transcriptomics and single-cell ATAC sequencing approaches to investigate the molecular pathways that are compromised in diabetic wound healing. Dr. Singh has published in several first-tier peer-reviewed journals such as Nature Nanotechnology, Nature communications, Molecular Therapy, Diabetes, etc.
