Our story

The original idea for Multiply Labs came from Alice (our Co-founder and CSO), who was a visiting PhD candidate in MIT’s chemical engineering department.
Alice had been creating drugs by hand in the MIT-Novartis Center for Continuous Manufacturing. Since this manual process was very slow, Alice asked Fred (our Co-founder and CEO) – one of her friends at MIT – to tour the lab where he was conducting his PhD research. Fred was building robotic limbs for factory workers and people with disabilities at the time, and his workspace was littered with robotic appendages and 3-D printers. Alice saw these robotic systems at work, and had a “eureka moment”: only advanced automation can enable the production of personalized drugs.

The founders

ALICE MELOCCHI
Co-founder and CSO
Alice is the CSO and co-founder of Multiply Labs. Alice earned her PhD in Pharmaceutical Technology from the University of Milan after being a Visiting Scholar at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), working within the Novartis MIT center for Continuous Manufacturing. She has deep expertise in the development of innovative drug delivery systems.0 Alice had the original intuition of using robotics to manufacture individual drugs, which is at the core of Multiply Lab’s technology. Alice runs pharmaceutical research and development at the company and, together with Fred, has co-authored all of Multiply Lab’s IP and scientific publications. Her research has received several scientific awards, including the Best Paper Award in the Journal of Drug Delivery Science and Technology
Fred Parietti
Co-founder and CEO
Fred is the CEO and co-founder of Multiply Labs. Fred holds a PhD in robotics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and has extensive experience in the design of 3D printers and autonomous robotic systems. Prior to his research at MIT, Fred worked on advanced robotics at Carnegie Mellon University, the Polytechnic University of Milan (Italy) and ETH Zurich (Switzerland).Fred has authored or co-authored 16 peer-reviewed scientific publications, which have been cited more than 1,200 times. He is also a co-inventor in 10 patents and patent applications. His research in the field of advanced robotics has been awarded with the MIT Mechanical Engineering De Florez Design Award.
