Serena Rinaldo received the Laurea degree in biology in 2002 (cum laude) and then the Ph.D. degree in biochemistry from the University of Rome La Sapienza, Rome, Italy, in 2005. Rinaldo serves as a Researcher in the Department of Biochemical Sciences at the same university (2012–2015). She then had the Postdoctoral Research Contract in 2008 and then a Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2012, from the same university. She has 26 peer-reviewed papers. Her main research topics are biochemical characterization of enzymes from P. aeruginosa involved in production and degradation of c-di-GMP (kinetic, structure, and binding assays) and anaerobic metabolism of P. aeruginosa: protein engineering and kinetic characterization of redox enzymes and transcription factors. Rinaldo is responsible for a microcalorimetry ITC facility using the Microcal ITC200 instrument.
