Dr. White's research interest is on various aspects of regulation of gene expression. Much of the work centers on the role of nuclear receptors in controlling gene transcription. His lab has been interested in the molecular mechanisms of action of estrogen receptors (ERs). They are also studying the genomics of nuclear receptor action, more specifically the potential role of vitamin D3 receptor target genes in controlling the growth of cancer cells.
