Dr. Majmundar is currently an attending pediatric nephrologist at Boston Children's Hospital and an instructor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Majmundar's research explores the genetic basis of pediatric kidney diseases with a focus on Mendelian genetic forms of nephrotic syndrome and kidney stone disease.
Active projects in his laboratory include discovering novel Mendelian genetic causes of pediatric kidney stone diseases using human genomics, investigating the biological mechanisms by which recessive genetic variants in NOS1AP cause a pediatric glomerulopathy via cellular and mouse models, and dissecting the biological mechanisms by which de novo variants in TRIM8 cause a syndrome of epilepsy and nephrotic syndrome in humans using cellular and mouse models.
