Francesca Milletti leads Cheminformatics and Statistics at Roche (Nutley, NJ, USA). She joined Roche in 2010 after a postdoctoral fellowship at Novartis, Basel. Before that, she was a visiting student at the University of California, San Francisco (2008). She received her PhD and undergraduate degree in chemistry from the University of Perugia, Italy, where she developed computational tools for pKa prediction and tautomer enumeration. Her current research focuses on novel computational methods for drug discovery, with a special interest on drug repurposing at the interface of chemistry and genomics.
