Research Interests: Dr. Singh’s long-term research interest is to understand the molecular basis of Staphylococcus aureus pathogenicity. Although numerous S. aureus virulence factors are well characterized, it remains unclear how these factors coordinate and respond to the host's immune system during the course of infection. In addition, increasing levels of resistance to existing antibiotics is seriously reducing the options to treat staphylococcal infections. Dr. Singh is investigating global changes in staphylococcal gene expression in response to stress conditions and identifying regulatory networks that aid in the process of infection and antibiotic tolerance with the aim of identifying novel chemotherapeutic agents.
