Technical Director of Diagnostics
Peter’s role is to grow the Aptamer Diagnostics business – by identifying new market opportunities for aptamer-based diagnostic products across the clinical, veterinary and agri-food sectors, and once identified, look to develop new products to exploit these opportunities, either ourselves here in York or working with collaborators and channel partners already active in these markets worldwide.
Peter has a strong background technical and commercial background, with over 25 years in the life science laboratory industry, including senior positions with diagnostics start-ups, based in York.
“I am very excited to be joining the company at this point in its history. Everything is in place for rapid growth, and I’m looking forward to using my insight in this sector to identify opportunities where aptamer-based products can solve customer problems better than existing solutions”.
Peter has a BSc in Applied Biology from Cardiff University in 1987 and an MSc in Biotechnology from Teesside University in 1993, and an MBA from Bradford University in 2008.
