Meet the Scientist: Professor Meharvan Singh

Professor Meharvan Singh – fondly known as “Sonny” – is a Texas-based neuroscientist with family roots in Kuala Lumpur. He studies how hormones (such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone) affect brain functions, and how these hormones, or the lack of them, influence brain aging as well as the vulnerability of the brain to neurodegenerative conditions (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease) and certain brain cancers (e.g. glioblastoma). After being invited to serve the SciMy Advisory Board, Sonny recently shared his thoughts on science (and life!) in our inaugural live web interview session on March 2, 2013.
