Genomic duplication followed by adaptive mutation is considered one of the primary forces for evolution of new function. Duplicated sequences are also dynamic regions of rapid structural change during the course of chromosome evolution. The long-term goal of his research is to understand the evolution, pathology and mechanism(s) of recent gene duplication and DNA transposition within the human genome. His work involves the systematic discovery of these regions, the development of methods to assess their variation, the detection of signatures of rapid gene evolution and ultimately the correlation of this genetic variation with phenotypic differences within and between species.

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.

Research is focused on androgen and androgen receptor-related mechanisms of resistance that lead to prostate cancer progression. Current areas of research include pathways of intra-tumoral androgen steroidogenesis and metabolism, structural alterations in the androgen receptor, the activity of androgen transport proteins, and how alterations in these and other pathway may influence the sequencing of androgen and chemotherapy treatments. An important goal is to determine how patient and tumor-specific alterations in these proteins may be used to predict response to agents targeting these pathways.

The overarching goal of the projects in the Simon laboratory is the development of small molecules as mechanistic probes for a variety of cellular processes and as potential lead compounds for the development of therapeutic agents. To this end we apply an interdisciplinary approach ranging from chemical synthesis and medicinal chemistry to genetics and cell biology. The compounds we are studying have been identified from large collections of synthetic, drug-like compounds and from natural sources. While screening compound libraries is a significant part of what we do the majority of our efforts go into mechanistic studies to understand the biology and pharmacology of lead compounds and efforts to improve their activity through chemical synthesis of analogs.
