Dr. Kumud K. Singh earned his Ph.D. in biophysics at the University of Delhi, India, where he studied the structure-functional properties of catalytic RNAs. His postdoctoral research at the University of Kiel in Germany and The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, focused on the development of fluorescence resonance electronic transfer and fluorescence polarization-based detection, catalysis and kinetic analyses of nucleic acids and ribozymes, and understanding the role of telomerase in carcinogenesis and aging. Subsequently, he joined the Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Pediatrics at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and rose to the rank of an associate professor. At UCSD, he taught at the school of pharmacy and school of medicine and supervised postdoctoral fellows, research associates, and undergraduate students. His lab focused on HIV/AIDS related innate and adaptive immune responses, role of host genetic factors in the risk of HIV infection and disease progression to AIDS, central nervous system impairment, mother-to-child transmission, and pharmacogenetics of antiretroviral therapy response in children and adults. Dr. Singh joined the NIH as a scientific review officer in the AIDS Review Branch of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and served as Deputy Chief in that branch before joining CSR.
