Tom Gordon, MD, PhD, is Professor and Head of the Department of Immunology at the Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University of South Australia. He is a clinical immunologist and immunopathologist with an interest in systemic autoimmune diseases, particularly lupus and Sjögren’s syndrome. He worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Scripps Clinic in San Diego, California and was a Greenberg fellow at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation. Current research includes the characterisation of functional autoantibodies by physiological assays and the first proteomic analysis of systemic autoantibodies by high resolution mass spectrometric sequencing.
