About Professor White

I grew up in Eastaboga, Alabama (pop. <5,000). After graduating from high school, I attended Auburn University where I received a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences in 1995.  I completed my Ph.D. in 2001 from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in Professor Steven J. Pittler’s laboratory where my thesis focused on the molecular and biochemical characterization of the rod photoreceptor phosphodiesterase in retina and retinoblastoma cells. I then moved to San Diego, California where I joined the lab of Nobel laureate Gerald Edelman and worked with Kathryn Crossin at The Scripps Research Institute. While at Scripps, I conducted a brief research project in characterization of neural stem cells before moving to the Salk Institute for Biological Studies working with Katherine Jones. My studies at the Salk Institute were in the area of transcriptional gene regulation studying Notch signaling and its importance in Cancer Biology. Upon completing my studies at the Salk Institute, I accepted an Assistant Professorship at San José State University (SJSU) in 2007 where I am currently.
