Adam Resnick, PhD

Director

Center for Data Driven Discovery in Biomedicine

Adam Resnick is the Director of Data Driven Discovery in Biomedicine (D3b) at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) responsible for leading a multidisciplinary team to build and support a scalable, patient-focused healthcare and educational discovery ecosystem on behalf of all children. He is also responsible for all scientific and fiscal responsibility for projects within the Center including: center leadership, supervision of bioinformatics, genomics, visualization tools and software development for the data resource portal shared by various center initiatives.

Adam’s research is focused on defining the cell signaling mechanisms of oncogenesis and tumor progression in brain tumors. His research lab studies cell signaling cascades and their alterations in pediatric brain tumors to elucidate the molecular and genetic underpinnings of each tumor in an effort to identify and develop targeted therapies. Adam serves as Scientific Chair for several consortia-based efforts, including the Children’s Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium (CBTTC) and Pacific Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Consortium (PNOC), which include more than 20 pediatric hospitals across the globe.

Adam earned a dual-bachelor’s in neuroscience and English & literature from the University of Florida before completing a PhD in neuroscience from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.
