Research Interests

The MacPherson Lab is focused on understanding the mechanisms through which cancer-mutated genes drive tumorigenesis. The lab studies two tumor types, small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and retinoblastoma. Genomic analyses of human tumors allow us to identify gene mutations that may contribute to tumor initiation, progression and metastasis.
