Phillip B. “Jay” Storm, M.D. is the Leslie N. Sutton Endowed Chair of the Division of Neurosurgery at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and the Director of the Center for Data Driven Discovery in Biomedicine (D3b). Dr. Storm is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Wake Forest University and a member of Phi Beta Kappa. He then earned his medical degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and is a member of Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA). Dr. Storm completed his residency in neurological surgery and his fellowship in neuro-oncology research at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He did a fellowship in pediatric neurosurgery at CHOP in 2003 and joined the faculty at CHOP and the University of Pennsylvania in 2004.

Dr. Storm is internationally recognized for his research and surgical treatment of brain and spine tumors and is a leader in endoscopic skull base surgery and complex reconstructive spine surgery. He co-directs the Resnick/Storm Translational Research Laboratory, now part of their new center, D3b. He leads an international tumor biobanking effort called the Children’s Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium (CBTTC) where the 17 member institutions from around the world send brain tumors to CHOP. In 2016 Drs. Storm and Resnick launched CAVATICA, as part of the White House precision medicine initiative. CAVATICA is a cloud-based biomedical data analysis platform that allows researchers to collaboratively access, analyze and share data about diseases impacting children. In 2017 they were awarded NIH sponsored Gabriella Miller Kid’s First Data Resource Center (DRC) grant. The Kid’s First DRC contains pediatric cancer and congenital birth defects data with the hope of empowering scientists to rapidly make discovery and identify novel therapeutic targets.
