He is Director of the MGH Stroke/Neuro-ICU Observership Program, and Director of the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Neurology Consult Program.
Dr. Singhal's key research interests are in stroke neuroprotection, stroke neuroimaging, and uncommon causes of stroke including reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS).
Dr. Singhal has conducted studies in both animals and humans to investigate the potential of Normobaric oxygen therapy (NBO) as an adjunctive therapy for acute ischemic stroke and acute migraine attacks. He is deputy PI of the New England Regional Coordinating Center for NIH StrokeNet. He is involved in NIH studies aimed at developing new imaging techniques for ischemic stroke, and several trials for stroke prevention.

Dr. Singhal, born in Mumbai, India, brings a key strength to the department. His interest in promoting stroke care at the international level, in addition to his strong relationship with key investigators in India, China, Brazil and other countries, has proved to be successful in breaking the international barrier and standardizing stroke management. He is past President of the Association of Indian Neurologists in America, International Advisor to the Indian Stroke Association, and Advisor to the Partners International. As director of our observership program, Dr. Singhal has accepted observers from over 35 countries, most of who are now developing or leading their own stroke units in their home countries.
