Dr Macgregor's area of primary interest is statistical genetics/genetic epidemiology. Within this field he has had success working on a very wide variety of traits ranging from bipolar disorder in psychiatry through to cancers such as melanoma. His work in the United Kingdom (MSc with distinction 2000, PhD - University of Edinburgh 2003, Lectureship - Cardiff University 2003-2005) led to several well cited publications including a first author paper in Science.

He joined Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) in 2005. He is currently Senior Research Fellow in the Queensland Statistical Genetics group, funded by an Australian National Health and Medical Research Council Career Development Award (Level 2). He is Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the School of Medicine, University of Queensland.

His work at QIMR includes the use of twin data to better understand quantitative trait variation and analysis of disease cohorts to identify disease susceptibility genes. He has developed novel methodology for the analysis of pooled DNA for genome wide association analysis and has spearheaded the application of DNA pooling in Australia. Successful applications of pooling include endometriosis, melanoma, alcohol dependence, glaucoma and macular degeneration, with further traits in the pipeline.

Dr Macgregor has received a number of awards recognizing his contributions to the field;

  • The Queensland Premier's Award for Medical Research 2009 (Senior Researcher Category)
  • The Millennium Award - Lorne Genome Conference 2009
  • Australian Academy of Science - Ruth Stephens Gani Medal 2010 (The Academy early career award recognizing distinguished research in human genetics)

In the public arena he was selected as one of Queensland's "Best and brightest" in both 2008 and 2009 by the newspaper The Courier Mail. The list, published annually, comprises 50 people from all aspects of life, ranging from Olympic medalists to business leaders.

Dr Macgregor has set up a network of collaborators that includes researchers in various centres in the UK, United States, New Zealand and The Netherlands. In Australia, he has established collaborations with researchers in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

Dr Macgregor is principle supervisor of one PhD student and associated supervisor of two PhD students. He currently employs one Research Assistant.

VErsatile Gene-based Association Study program (VEGAS): VEGAS is a web based program which calculates a gene-based (rather than a single marker based) test of association for genome-wide association studies (GWAS). The program implements a method which is applicable to family-based GWAS, meta-analysis of GWAS based on summary data and DNA pooling-based GWAS where existing approaches based on permutation are not possible, as well as to case-control/singleton data, where they are. The program was the subject of a publication in the American Journal of Human Genetics (SM publication 47).

Genetic Association Interaction Analysis (GAIA): GAIA is a web-based program for genetic association analysis. GAIA is a freely available program that allows non-specialist users access to an important methodological technique for genetic association analysis. The program is used worldwide. The program was the subject of a publication in BMC Medical Genetics (SM publication 19).
