Dr. Manish Singh


Confocal  and  Electron  Microscopy,  Cellular  and  Molecular Neuroscience,  In-utero Exposures and CNS Development, Behavioral Neurology.


Research Interest

  • Research interests of my group include Cellular and  Molecular  Neuroscience,  In  utero Exposures and CNS Development, Neuro-Behavioral Analysis, Nanoneurotoxicology,  Developmental Nanotoxicology, Nano Environmental Health and Safety and Bioimaging Tools (Confocal and Electron Microscopy). We are currently working on toxicology of nanomaterials like GO with a special focus on their hazardous effects on reproductive, fetal and long term behavioural outcomes. We are also exploring the applications of piezoelectric nanomaterials and physical stimulation strategies for enhancement of neuritic outgrowth and neuronal regeneration.
