Dr. Eileen White is a leader in the cancer autophagy field and has recently begun publishing on non-autophagy related metabolic signaling. She has relied heavily on in vivo models of cancer and has more recently begun studying the interface between cancer metabolism and immune regulation.

“Eileen White is a cancer biologist known for her work establishing that a DNA tumor virus oncogene functions by inhibiting programmed cell death by apoptosis and is a homologue of the human BCL-2 oncogene. She is also known for establishing that tumor cells induce intracellular nutrient scavenging by autophagy, which promotes their metabolism, growth, survival, and malignancy.”

“Current research of the White Laboratory at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey has focused on translational research modulating the apoptosis pathway for cancer therapy and on the role of autophagy and cellular metabolism in cancer progression and treatment.”
