Ermenegilda Parrilli was born in 1975 and studied chemistry at the Universita' di Napoli Federico II in 1999 summa cum laude. The degree was obtained by carrying out and discussing a research thesis on the construction of plasmids to producing proteins in psychrophilic bacteria. In 2004, Parrilli obtained her Ph.D. degree in biochemistry and molecular biology at the Universita' di Napoli Federico II. In 2005, she received a grant from Dipartimento di Chimica Organica e Biochimica dell’Università “Federico II” di Napoli. Parrilli worked in 2006 as an Associate Researcher at the Faculty of Biotechnological Sciences of the Universita' di Napoli Federico II. She attended several national and international scientific congresses and meetings, at which she presented a number of papers, communications, and posters. Her more recent research projects focused on: 1) the study of molecular adaptations in cold-adapted microorganisms, 2) setting up of recombinant gene-expression systems in psychrophilic bacteria, 3) study of protein secretion mechanisms in cold-adapted Gram-negative bacteria, and 4) study of genetic systems aimed to construction of cold-adapted Gram-negative bacteria genomic mutants.
