Sumeet Pal Singh, PhD is an alumni of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur. He graduated in 2004 with a B.Tech. degree in Biological Sciences and Bioengineering. Directly after bachelor’s degree, he joined the PhD program at Duke University, USA where he performed his doctorate under the supervision of Dr. Kenneth Poss. For his thesis, Sumeet worked on the cellular basis of bone regeneration in the zebrafish fin amputation model.

For post-doctoral work, Sumeet started work on planarian model system, a fascinating organism with extraordinary regenerative capacity, in the lab of Dr. Jochen Rink at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG), Germany.

For his second post-doc, he returned to zebrafish research in the lab of Dr. Nikolay Ninov at Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD), Germany. Focussing on the pancreatic beta-cells, Sumeet uncovered latent heterogeneity in the beta-cell population. For this, he developed several transgenic reagents to interrogate the proliferative and functional differences among individual cells. He was awarded an EFSD/Lilly Young Investigator Fellowship for his efforts.

In 2019, Sumeet was awarded the Mandat d’impulsion scientifique - mobilité Ulysse (MISU) by Le Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique (FNRS) to start his group at IRIBHM, part of ULB in Brussels, Belgium.
