Scott Glasser

Manager of Web Services

Scott comes to the Research Institute with over 20 years of interactive development experience focused on the management of web and application development teams in public, private, and non-profit sectors from NASA Headquarters to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Here at CHOP, Scott manages a team of web developers who build and maintain websites and web applications for the Research Institute. His goal is to provide the Research Institute with a world-class web presence and associated tools and services that enable researchers to be the leaders in pediatric translational research. When he's not getting in the team's way, he's likely found forging pewter jewelry, creating kinetic sculpture, and generally tinkering to no constructive end.
