Gordon works on the detection and measurement of chemical residues in a wide range of GLP studies.
Gordon works on the detection and measurement of herbicide, pesticide,
veterinary medicine and other chemical residues, and in the conduct of
GLP studies. As a GLP study director, Gordon has conducted a wide range
of studies including method development and the analysis of crops,
animal tissues and environmental samples.
Regulations and restrictions on the use of chemicals to tackle plant and animal pests and diseases are becoming increasingly stringent, which means the range of chemical options available for tackling these threats is constantly being eroded. It’s essential to ensure that any chemicals used in the environment do not pose a threat to plants, wildlife and ecosystems, while ensuring they are effective against target pests and diseases.
