Adam RESNICK

Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, USA

Dr. Resnick is Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and Director of the The Childhood Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium (CBTTC) in Neurosurgery at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The Resnick laboratory studies cell signaling cascades and their alterations in pediatric brain tumors. The goal of the laboratory is to elucidate the molecular and genetic underpinnings of pediatric brain tumors in an effort to identify and develop targeted therapies. Additional, related studies focus on the characterization of novel cell signaling cascades impinging on cancer biology, including the inositol polyphosphates and their associated metabolism. Dr. Resnick also leads a number of Open Data initiatives focused on genomic data sharing and the necessary infrastructure to support collaborative research efforts.

Dr. Resnick is focused on defining the cell signaling mechanisms of oncogenesis and tumor progression in brain tumors.
