About

Dr Tejas P Singh is a Junior Doctor at The Townsville Hospital and a Research Fellow at the Queensland Research Centre for Peripheral Vascular Disease (QRCPVD) at the School of Medicine and Dentistry, James Cook University. After graduating from a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery, Dr Singh completed a Masters of Public Health and is currently undertaking a Doctor of Philosophy at James Cook University. Dr Singh’s research commitment is illustrated by multiple publications in high-impact peer reviewed journals and numerous presentations at international and national level conferences. Dr Singh aspires to provide quality clinical care to patients with vascular diseases and contribute research aimed at improving the management of peripheral vascular diseases. Dr Singh has been awarded multiple grants from a range of organisations including the Queensland Government. Of note, in 2017 Dr Singh was awarded a research fellowship from the Queensland Government valued at $250,000 to support his research aimed at investigating novel methods of estimating prognosis for patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms.

Research/Projects:

  • Identifying novel drug, diagnostic and prognostic targets for peripheral arterial diseases and associated cardiovascular complications.
  • Evaluating the prognostic utility of biomechanical estimates of wall stress for abdominal aortic aneurysms.  
  • Investigating the presenting characteristics and clinical outcomes of Indigenous Australians with peripheral arterial disease.
  • Investigating the clinical utility of blood markers to monitor progress and treatment efficacy in peripheral arterial disease.
  • Development and validation of a novel angiographic scoring system for peripheral arterial disease.
  • Investigating the association of Computed Tomographic lower limb muscle characteristics with lower limb and cardiovascular events in patients with peripheral artery disease.

Peak Wall Stress as a prognostic indicator of abdominal Aortic Aneurysm rupture risk

Indicative Funding
$50,000 over 2 years
Summary
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) affects 20 million people worldwide and 100,000 people in Australia. Annually, AAA rupture leads to 200,000 deaths worldwide and 2000 deaths in Australia. In clinical practice, maximum AAA diameter is the preferred surrogate measure for disease progression and rupture risk, and is used to guide surgical intervention. Approximately 10% of AAAs will rupture before they reach the current threshold for repair, whereas 60% of large AAAs remain stable during their lifetime, suggesting that diameter alone is an imperfect tool to decide which AAAs require surgical intervention. The specific aims of the project are Aim 1: To investigate if PWS is greater in patients with ruptured compared to intact AAAs matched for diameter; Aim 2: To evaluate the impact of a common anti-hypertensive medication {Telmisartan) on PWS and rupture risk in patients with small AAAs.

Assessment of the efficacy of a novel treatment for Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)

Indicative Funding
$50,000 over 2 years
Summary
Blockage of leg arteries (peripheral artery disease - PAD) leads to severe exertional leg pain (intermittent claudication), impaired walking ability, reduced health-related quality of life, and high risk of amputation and death. Multiple lines of evidence suggest that metformin, a cheap and safe medication, promotes formation of new vessels, improves microcirculation and muscle function,s and limits pain.
