Current Research Projects:
Dr. Cameron‘s research is on modifying pectin structural motifs and understanding the different functional properties that can be exhibited as the structure is modified. The two main ways that the pectin structure is modified is with pectin methylesterase (plant or fungal) and by base saponification. Characterizing the different structural and functional properties of pectin is paving the way for multiple industries to advance the applications of their market products.
