Dr. Mary Maida

Dr. Mary Maida earned bachelor’s degrees in microbiology, finance, and operations management. She holds a master's degree in neurobiology and anatomy and a Ph.D. in molecular neuroscience, each of which was earned at the University of Rochester (UR) School of Medicine and Dentistry.

After thoroughly enjoying her most important role as stay-at-home mom, sports coach to her sons’ teams, and school and community volunteer, Dr. Maida returned to UR Medical School to complete her medical research degree.

Mary then founded The Medigen Group, LLC., a business incubator which assists medical professionals who are inventors of healthcare products through all phases of concept to commercial-readiness, with the goal of either licensing or entering full-scale production. In 2006, Dr. Maida established a second company, Clerisy Corp, for the sole purpose of completing the R&D, international patenting, FDA approvals, and market testing to bring an intranasal drug delivery device to market before selling the company in 2017.
