Career overview

Dr Samuel J White is a Senior Lecturer within the department of Animal, Equine and Veterinary Sciences at Nottingham Trent University. His research is wide-ranging covering applied immunology and genetics with a one health approach to identifying biomarkers, protein allergenicity, multi-omics and novel diagnostic/therapeutic approaches.

Prior to joining NTU, Dr White ran his own laboratory and consultancy company, was an Associate Researcher at the University of Nottingham, worked as a UKAS Assessor and Quality Manager for a government Laboratory. Samuel holds a BSc (Hons) from University of the West of England, an MSc from the Royal Agricultural University, and a PhD in Applied Immunology from the University of Gloucestershire.

Research areas

    Dr White’s research spans a wide range of different clinical conditions, allergies and inflammatory diseases, but the overarching theme is the novel development of diagnostics, and advancing treatments. Ongoing/current research interests include:

    - Multi-omics 
    - Microbial identification through next generation sequencing 
    - Whole genome sequencing (including variant identification) 
    - Microbiome profiling 
    - Protein expression 
    - Protein allergenicity 
    - Microarray development 
    - Lateral flow assay development 
    - Immunoglobulin isotype profiling 
    - Allergen-specific immunotherapy
