Dr. Kassam-Adams’ current research focuses on data sharing and data harmonization in traumatic stress research, and on the development and evaluation of tools that enable trauma-informed and family-centered care in pediatric health settings. Current National Institutes of Health-funded projects include an eHealth tool incorporating game-based screening of child symptoms and functioning, and online training for providers in non-pediatric emergency departments.
What one researcher describes as asthma, another might call reactive airway disease. Unfortunately, such examples demonstrate the lack of a common pediatric research terminology, which presents a barrier to data reuse, sharing, and integration.
Work in the Resnick and Storm Lab focuses on the cell signaling mechanisms of oncogenesis and tumor progression in brain tumors. The lab studies signaling cascades and alterations to elucidate the molecular and genetic underpinnings in order to develop targeted therapies. As co-directors of the Center for Data Driven Discovery in Biomedicine, Drs. Resnick and Storm lead a multidisciplinary team to build and support a scalable, patient-focused healthcare and educational discovery ecosystem.
Working together as a national community of hospitals, healthcare organizations, researchers and clinicians, patients and families to identify the most important research questions that can reduce children’s suffering and support their healthy development.
