Biography

Gordon Morris is Senior Lecturer in Forensic & Analytical Science at the Department of Chemical and Biological Sciences. He is an analytical and biopolymer chemist and has active research interests in the areas of polysaccharide structure-function, mucoadhesion and protein chemistry.

He studied for his first degree and MSc in chemistry at the University of Aberdeen before moving to the University of Nottingham in the group of Prof. Steve Harding to conduct BBSRC Industrial Case PhD with Unilever Research (Dr. Tim Foster) on “Hydrodynamic investigation of polysaccharides and their interactions with casein”. After leaving Nottingham he completed a postdoctoral position at Industrial Research Limited (IRL) in Lower Hutt, New Zealand where he worked on the physical and chemical characterisation of chemically and enzymatically modified polysaccharides. He continued this work with in a further postdoctoral position with the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) in Nantes. This then took him back to Nottingham where he worked for 4.5 years as a Research and Teaching Fellow at the School of Biosciences where his research interests included: stability of chitosan nanoparticles; stability of pectin solutions and gels and polysaccharide/ polysaccharide interactions. He joined the University of Huddersfield as a lecturer in January 2011.

Research and Scholarship

Polysaccharide interactions:

  • Polysaccharide/ mucin interactions e.g. chitosan mucoadhesion
  • Polysaccharide/ polysaccharide interactions e.g. protein-like reversible oligomerisation of amino-cellulose; weak self-association in arabinoxylan; xanthan/ konjac and alginate "PolyGlocopleX"
  • Polysaccharide/ protein interactions e.g. pectin and casein micelles; K-carrageenan and gliadin
  • Interactions between polysaccharides (prebiotics) and gut microflora

Construction of stable polysaccharide drug delivery systems:

  • Stability of pectin solutions for nasal drug delivery
  • Stability of chitosan nanoparticles were studied using a range of techniques

Extraction and characterisation of therapeutic molecules:

  • Physico-chemical characterisation of the polysaccharides, proteins and oils from pumpkins
  • Immunological and structural properties of pectins

Effect of enzymatic or chemical modification on the properties of polysaccharides:

  • Physico-chemical characterisation of the rhamnogalacturonan and homogalacturonan fractions of sugar beet (beta vulgaris) pectin
  • Characterisation of sodium caseinate-maltodextrin glyco-conjugates
  • Chemical and enzymatic modification of puka (Meryta sinclairii) gum

Dilute solution conformation of polysaccharides:

  • Physical characterisation of polysaccharides e.g. pectin, chitosan, methyl cellulose, konjac, guar and xyloglucan
