Dr Gordon Smith

Senior Laboratory Scientist

After completing his PhD at the University of Glasgow, Gordon was hired as the second lab-based employee at Nexabiome joining in late 2011. Initially assisting with the projects, Gordon has since
grown within the company into a senior scientist where he has led multiple successful collaborative and development projects.

Following on from a PhD in decontamination of medical instruments, Gordon has a particular interest in the application of phages to control bacterial biofilms in multiple environments as well as
using phages to improve animal health. This includes the design and implementation of biofilm models to provide appropriate, phage-specific, efficacy testing.

When not having fun with his two boys, Gordon enjoys organising recreational football matches, a good board game and the care and breeding of saltwater fish.
