President and Founder Dr. Lietz is the primary inventor of Genopsys' portfolio of technologies and is a Research Fellow at the University of California, Santa Cruz where he directs research in the areas of nucleic acid technologies. Dr.Lietz has extensive experience in nucleic acid amplification technologies and diagnostics, with numerous scientific publications and issued patents in the field of random nucleic acid amplification and detection. Dr. Lietz received his MS and PhD degrees in biochemistry from the University of California, Santa Cruz. He was the Vice-President of Operations for X-Sirius, Inc., a company that advanced sputum cytopathology for early cancer detection. Earlier, Dr. Lietz founded the North American subsidiary of Biffar GmBH. Dr. Lietz began his research at the University of Maryland, College Park. His early work involved genetic manipulations and biophysical characterization of adenylate cyclase, from Salmonella typhimurium. The native enzyme is 95 kDa. However, by tryptic digestion of the enzyme, it was discovered that a stable and more active 30 kDa domain could be isolated. This work introduced Dr. Lietz to the concept that proteins could be 'optimized' by manipulation of their primary structure.
