He joins as Engineering and Programme Manager with immediate effect, taking overall charge of Innomech's project teams, and will further boost the company's existing expertise in developing automated, high-speed systems involved in the manufacture and testing of sophisticated new products and devices. Before joining Innomech, Dr Woods was Product Development Manager at The Automation Partnership (TAP) and a driving force behind many of its top-selling products and systems.

Steve Robertson, Operations Director at Innomech, comments: "Peter is a significant addition to our senior engineering team. He has first-class problem solving and project management skills and has helped many of the world's big brand pharmaceutical and biotech companies to use automation to reduce their costs, while driving up quality and productivity."

Dr Woods has spent the bulk of his career focused on pharmaceutical automation and in 2008 was one of four finalists for the UK's biggest engineering prize, the MacRobert Award from The Royal Academy of Engineering. He was shortlisted for his pioneering work on the Polar system for UK Biobank. The Polar system is designed to keep 10million human blood and urine samples at a steady -80degC for 25 years but, at the same time, allow any sample to be retrieved immediately for analysis or testing.

Peter Woods has a PhD from University of Manchester, a first degree in physics from University of Bristol and started his industrial career developing image analysis systems for automotive production lines in Germany.
