Research Interests

Dr. White’s research focuses on the influence of gender on the disposition of drugs and drug carriers, and their subsequent therapeutic or toxic outcomes, and the physiological-based pharmacokinetic modeling for utilization in predicting toxicity and exposures. She also studies drug:drug interactions occurring at the maternal-placental-fetal interfaces, and pre-clinical evaluation of pharmacokinetics and toxicity of new drug entities. She is also searching for educational strategies that enhance active learning for pharmacy students.
