Peter P. Pott is head of the Institute for Medical Device Technology, which started operations in July 2017.

The most important stations in his academic career were

2000 the successful completion of a mechanical engineering study at the University of Applied Sciences in Mannheim and a subsequent supplementary study at the University of Mannheim. There, namely at the chair for automation (Prof. Essameddin Badreddin), he

In 2008, received his doctorate in natural sciences. During this period, he worked at the Laboratory of Biomechanics and Experimental Orthopaedics under Prof. Markus Schwarz, who also provided him with the necessary tools for his successful work at German universities. His work focused mainly on medical robotics and also on questions relating to biomechanics, tissue engineering and orthopaedics.

In 2009, he moved to the Institute for Electromechanical Design (EMK) at the TU Darmstadt as a postdoc. With the Profes. Schlaak and Werthschützky he focused on electromechanical systems, active vibration control and piezo actuation. Most of the time, however, he was scientific managing director and thus responsible for the organization of teaching and research and head of the competence group Micromechatronics. A good quarter of a year at the University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand rounded off this period. Not to be forgotten, however, in the year

2015 the habilitation (venia legendi for the subject mechatronics).

In 2016 he broke with research and moved to Leica Microsystems CMS GmbH in Mannheim. There, as head of mechanical design, he learned a lot about industrial development processes, organization and business systems - valuable building blocks for successful project work.

2017 - many different circumstances led to this - finally the move to the University of Stuttgart as full professor at the newly founded Institute for Medical Device Technology.

Peter P. Pott is a member of the VDE and the professional associations GMM and DGBMT and furthermore of the section basic research of DGOOC. He has won various prizes (Future Workshop of the BMBF (2011), Walter Reis Innovation Award (2008), Artur Fischer Inventor Award (2005), CyberOne (2004)) and acts as a reviewer for numerous renowned journals and the EU.

He is married and has three happy children.
