Dr. Meharvan ‘Sonny’ Singh named Dean of Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences

April 3, 2014

A UNT Health Science Center researcher recognized internationally for his work on hormones and the aging brain has been named Dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.

Meharvan “Sonny” Singh, PhD, who has served as Interim Dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences since January, said he is eager to take on his new role.

“I am excited and enthusiastic about the opportunity to serve our faculty, staff and students in my new role as Dean,” he said. “I look forward to working with them to identify new collaborative ways by which we enable success.”

Selecting Dr. Singh as the new Dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences was an easy task because it was possible to observe him in the interim role and in his previous post as Chair of Pharmacology and Neuroscience, said Thomas Yorio, PhD., Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs.

“Dr. Singh is a strong, thoughtful leader who cares about students, faculty and staff and who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this position,” Dr. Yorio said.” I look forward to working with him to continue the growth and success of the graduate school and the Health Science Center.”

Dr. Singh joined UNTHSC in 2001 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology & Neuroscience and rose to the rank of Professor in 2010. Dr. Singh served as Chair of Pharmacology and Neuroscience from 2011 to 2013 and as Interim Director of the Institute for Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease Research (IAADR) from 2012 to 2013.

Dr. Singh received his doctorate from the University of Florida.
