Gordon graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2000 with a BSc (Hons) in Parasitology and then remained at University of Glasgow to study for his doctoral thesis in immunology/microbiology.

MD Biosciences commercialised research from the labs of Profs Paul Garside and Iain McInnes and Gordon led the tech transfer from University lab to industrial setting. During his 8 year tenure, the company grew from start-up to employing 15 people and served a global client group of biotech and pharma companies.
