Our History

Tethys Research LLC was initially formed in late 2000 by Dr. Nancy Kravit and Ms. Robyn Kravit to focus on a novel strategy for biotransformation. In its early years, Tethys worked on projects to discover new chemical entities in the life sciences and bioremediation industries. In late 2004, a research request led the company to change its focus to the discovery of industrial enzymes with a specialization in the pulp and paper sector. During this period, three minority partners joined the firm, bringing additional technical and commercial expertise.
