PhD, Miami University.
BS in genetics, University of Georgia.
Mayur graduated from the University of Georgia with a bachelor’s in genetics before working as a junior research fellow at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Mumbai, India. He then returned to the United States and received his PhD at Miami University studying various models of limb, lens and retina regeneration. He trained as a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Dr. Kenny Campbell at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital focusing his research on forebrain development in mice. In the Tesar lab he pioneered the generation of human cortical organoids that contain myelinating oligodendrocytes. Mayur is now using this organoid system to model multiple Myelin related disorders including Pelizeus-Merzbacher Disease and Vanishing White Matter Disease and to test preclinical therapeutics on patient derived cortical organoids.
