Personal profile


Paul White is Associate Professor and Associate Dean Education at the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Monash University Australia. 
In education, Dr White has led a transformation of teaching to an active learning approach at Monash Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences with colleague Dr Ian Larson. Dr White has given numerous invited seminars on implementing active learning at national and international conferences. He has received teaching excellence awards from Monash pharmacy students, his Faculty (2006, 2014), Monash Vice Chancellor's award (2014), Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching (2015).
Dr White is a cardiovascular pharmacologist and co-leader of the GPCR cardioprotection laboratory with Dr Lauren May, as part of the Drug Discovery Biology theme led by Professors Arthur Christopoulos and Patrick Sexton, within the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences. The GPCR cardioprotection group currently has significant national health and medical research funding to develop new cardioprotective agents post myocardial infarction. A number of biased adenosine receptor agonists with novel pharmacology have been identified. These novel compounds show desired cardioprotective effects and avoid on-target bradycardia in multiple models.
