Sara Tortorella received her Ph.D. degree in Biotechnology (Cheminformatic and Molecular Modeling) from the University of Perugia (2017). During her studies, she joined Prof. Tobin Marks materials for photovoltaics group at Northwestern University (Chicago, USA), Prof. Duncan Bruce liquid crystals and materials chemistry group at the University of York (York, UK), Prof. Manuel Pastor pharmacoinformatics group at the Parc de Recerca Biomedica (Barcelona, Spain), and Dr. Steve Castellino bioimaging and DMPK group at GSK (Philadelphia, USA).
Her area of expertise is the use and development of chemometric and cheminformatic algorithms to the fields of material and drug design, molecular modeling, and lipidomics.
Currently, Sara is researcher at Molecular Horizon, innovative biotech start-up based in Perugia, Italy.
Her main research activity is focused on the build up of an integrated platform for the research and development of innovative drugs for oncologic and metabolic diseases.
