The academic journey of Dr. Sarman Singh, began with the secondary education from Aligarh, U.P. and Graduation in Biological Science from Agra University with the real stepping stone being, Degree in Medicine& Surgery from elite “King George’s Medical College, Lucknow” and from here, there was no looking back. By 1985, he had obtained a Post Graduate Diploma in Hospital Administration and later pursued his “Doctorate in Medicine” with specialization in Medical Microbiology from Post Graduate Institute of Medical and Research, Chandigarh in 1987

Dr. Singh has been trained at one of the best Schools of Epidemiology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA in 1990, where he pursued a short term training on epidemiology of infectious diseases. In the year 2002, he obtained training in Ethical issues in International Health Research from Harvard Medical School (USA) and University of Natal, South Africa, and has also been trained on Intellectual Property Rights at the National Law School, Bangalore, India.

His major turning point was moving to All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi as senior resident in 1988 and rising to the present position of Professor & Head of “Division of Clinical Microbiology & Molecular Medicine, Department of Laboratory Medicine”. At that time, the Division had no Research and Developmental work and had a limited academic role in action. However, through Dr. Singh’s sheer hard work and commitment this Division has developed into a full-fledged Molecular Biology Laboratory well-equipped with few of the best modern Diagnostic and Research tools in the world. His laboratory is catering routine molecular diagnostic services not only to the Institutes’ patients, but also to the patients in and outside Delhi. He is leading a team of nine Ph.D. students, and sixteen technical personnel. He has directed more than 25 national and international research projects.

For his research work on leishmaniasis, Department of Biotechnology, Government of India awarded him long term fellowship for the year 1994-95, which provided him an opportunity to work with World renowned Prof. K.P. Chang, at Chicago Medical School, Chicago, USA. He has earned accolades for his indigenous work on three intracellular pathogens: Toxoplasma, Leishmania and Mycobacterium( both in HIV positive and HIV negative patients). Amongst the prestigious and highly acclaimed awards, Dr. Singh has been awarded with Biotech Product and Process Development and Commercial Award by Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, New Delhi (2006); prestigious Dr. B.C. Roy Award (Hari Om Ashram Alembic Research Award (2006); Dr. B.PPandey Oration Award of Indian Society of Parasitology as best teach teacher in Parasitology (2006); VigyanRatnasamman from the Government of Uttar Pradesh (2007); Dr. B.K.Aikat Award of Indian Council of Medical Research (2008); Life Time Achivemnet Award of the Society for Immunology & Immunopathology (2013);Med-Achiever Award of Indian Medical Association for Innovative Research (2014);Chikitsa rattan Award of Delhi Medical Association (2014); and BMJ Excellence Award (2014) for Innovation in Healthcare Technology amongst others. He also has two International Awards to his credit-The Young Scientist Award (1996) of the International Immunocompromised Host Society (USA) and Merit Award (1998) of the International Immunocompromised Host Society (USA) again. Several of his students have also received several awards for their outstanding research work.

He has 6 books, 42 book chapters and more than 301 research publications mostly in international journals, including Lancet, Cell, PNAS, BMJ, PNTD, to name a few. He is Fellow of Royal society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (FRSTMH, UK); National Academy of Medical Sciences, India (FAMS); International Medical Sciences Academy (FIMSA);Indian Academy of Parasitology (FIATP); and Society of Immunology and Immunopathology (FSIIP). He has been examiner for several universities and subject expert, Task force member and project reviewer for almost all Indian funding agencies and also for Turkey, South Africa and Israel Governments. He has delivered hundreds of guest lectures, keynote speeches and special addresses.
