Bio


Dr. MacPherson studies two tumor types, small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and retinoblastoma. He conducts genomic analyses of human tumors to identify gene mutations that may contribute to tumor initiation, progression and metastasis. His goal is to understand the mechanisms through which cancer-mutated genes drive tumorigenesis, small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and retinoblastoma.
