Bryan Wolf received his M.D. and Ph.D. from the University of Paris, France, and completed post-doctoral training (Biochemistry), residency (Laboratory Medicine) and a fellowship (Clinical Chemistry) at Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes Hospital in Saint Louis. Since 1990, he has been on the faculty of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine where he is currently a tenured professor. His primary area of research focused on the signal transduction mechanisms of insulin secretion in the beta-cell of endocrine islets.
In 2015, Dr. Wolf was appointed Chief Scientific Officer and Executive Vice President at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Director of the CHOP Research Institute. He recognizes the critical need for pediatric health researchers to collaborate with patients, parents, and clinicians to generate knowledge at the point of care and to rapidly translate that knowledge into healthcare decision making.
