Research in the Singer lab is focused on understanding the influence of diet-induced obesity on hematopoiesis and the generation of activated macrophages that lead to metabolic disease.

Dr. Singer has a strong commitment to DE&I and actively works to promote a culture of DE&I which includes ongoing training and discussions within lab and through PIBS.

Research in the Singer lab is focused on understanding the influence of diet-induced obesity on hematopoiesis and the generation of activated macrophages that lead to metabolic disease.Current projects in the laboratory focus on (1) sexually dimorphic inflammatory responses responses to high fat diet and (2) mechanisms driving hematopoietic stem cell myeloid differentiation after high fat diet exposure. This work in mouse models uses bone marrow transplantation, stem-cell analysis techniques, and metabolic profiling.
