Dr. Amrit Singh has a bachelor’s degree in Biomath from McMaster University and obtained his PhD in Experimental Medicine from UBC in 2016. His thesis focused on the development of blood-based biomarker panels for different asthma phenotypes. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the PROOF Centre of Excellence, co-supervised by Drs. Bruce McManus and Raymond Ng. Amrit’s interests include analyses of high dimensional biological datasets for biomarker discovery, data integration, disease classification and method development. His current research aims include identifying and improving the biological understanding of mechanisms and biomarkers in heart failure and heart transplant rejection.
Amrit enjoy spending time with his family, staying fit (yoga, strength training/conditioning and swimming) and hiking.
