Arrayit Board of Directors
Rene Schena, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chairman of the Board and Director of Arrayit Corporation. Arrayit Corporation was formed from the Biotech Division of TeleChem International Inc., a company Ms. Schena co-founded in 1993. She received awards in 2002 and 2003 from Inc. Magazine as a top 500 fastest-growing, privately-held company, and in 2005 was recognized by the Silicon Valley Business Journal as the 11th largest woman-owned business in Silicon Valley. Ms. Schena’s strong business background and management expertise are key contributions to Arrayit’s infrastructure.
Ms. Schena holds a degree in Language Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz. She has 25 years experience in international business, including translation, contract documentation and commodities trading. She worked in commodities trading with a subsidiary of ConAgra (1985-1988) and as a chemical import and distribution specialist, department manager, and later President of NuSource Chemical Corporation (1988-1993). Ms. Schena co-founded TeleChem International, Inc., continued the import and export chemical distribution specialty, expanded into government-bid business, and expanded again into the biotech sector in 1996. Her management skills, long-term contacts in the chemical industry, strong business background and knowledge of supply-chain distribution were key contributions to TeleChem and the growth of the microarray business and Arrayit. Ms. Schena manages all corporate financial, tax, legal, regulatory and human resources activities, including budgeting, tax-related activities, investments, loans, financial strategies, major contract negotiations, patent and litigation activities, legal strategies, payroll, employee reviews, benefits, insurance, claims, inventory control, corporate administrative management, regulatory compliance, regulatory reporting and agency interface.
Mark Schena, Ph.D., President, Chief Science Officer, and Director of Arrayit Corporation. Dr. Schena graduated with a PhD in Biochemistry in 1990 from the University of California at San Francisco. In 1995, as a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, he published the first paper on microarrays in the premier scientific journal, Science, introducing microarrays to the world as a new scientific technology. His work rapidly led to a new field of discovery that uses microarrays to investigate both genes and proteins in research and diagnostics. Now microarrays are used in more than 100,000 laboratories in 50 countries to explore complicated questions in biology, chemistry, agriculture and medicine. The microarray field to date has produced 550,000 scientific publications. The commercial expansion of microarray technologies has created a billion dollar industry with several main players and over 200 companies that produce ancillary products and services. Acknowledged by his peers for the importance of these accomplishments, Dr. Schena was proclaimed the Father of Microarray Technology by The Scientist, a broadly read scientific journal, in 2003.
Todd Martinsky, Executive Vice President and Director of Arrayit Corporation. Todd Martinsky received a BA from San Jose State University, after which he served as Director of Education and Consulting at the Codd and Date Consulting Group, whose founder was famous for creating the relational database. Mr. Martinsky co-founded TeleChem International, Inc., in 1993, heading the Arrayit biotech division in 1996. His computer science consulting experience had an impact on Arrayit as he innovatively established Arrayit as an online business early on. This web-based enterprise was one of the first of its kind in this sector and helped Arrayit expand its new microarray technology sales rapidly.
