Expertise

Dr. White works on identifying the genomic contributors to disease risk for pediatric disorders, including ADHD, cardiac defects, and solid tumors. His group is also involved in developing new methods for extracting integrating and analyzing biomedical data using novel informatics approaches.

Dr. White oversees informatics research and resources at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, including genome-enabled medicine, clinical informatics, software development, educational, and bioinformatics activities. In addition, he has an active laboratory that is developing genomic analysis, natural language processing, data integration, and knowledge representation methods to help determine the molecular etiologies of particular pediatric diseases. Disorders of current interest include childhood cancer, diseases identified by newborn screening, and congenital cardiac defects. Dr. White plays a lead informatics role on a number of national data projects, including the NICHD Newborn Screening Translational Research Network, the NHLBI Bench to Bassinet Program, the NHGRI Clinical Sequencing and Exploratory Research Consortium, and the NIDCD Audiology and Genetics Database.
