Shailesh Singh, PhD, MSc, is a Professor in the Department of Microbiology, Biochemistry & Immunology at Morehouse School of Medicine.
Dr. Singh received his PhD in Cancer Biology and his MSc in Endocrinology and Reproductive Physiology from Banaras Hindu University in India.
Long-term research interest of Dr. Singh's laboratory includes developing comprehensive treatment and prevention strategies for prostate, breast and ovarian cancer. These strategies are directed to tumor cells and/or immune system using natural and synthetic products as a single agent, or in combination with conventional therapeutics.
His lab's research approach involves mechanistic studies to define the role of chemokines in cancer metastasis (i.e. detachment, motility, adhesion, invasion, survival and tumor growth at distant sites) as well as developing strategies to inhibit metastasis and enhance chemotherapeutic efficacy. Additionally, we are developing methods to overcome tumor induced immune suppression using natural products that treat/prevent cancer as a single agent or in combination with traditional therapeutics.
