After completing a Chemistry degree in 1970, Professor Maurizio Paci was attracted to the newly arising NMR spectroscopy technology where he became interested in the structural aspects of biological interactions. He became Assistant Professor in Physical Chemistry from 1974 to 1986 at the University of Rome La Sapienza. From 1986 to 1994 he was Associate Professor of Physical Chemistry. Since 1994 he is Full Professor of Biochemistry and Professor of Food Chemistry in the Specialist Degree in Human Nutrition, both at the University of Rome Tor Vergata. His research area of structural biochemistry and magnetic resonance include: study of the protein biosynthesis initiation factors and “histone‐like” proteins of E. Coli, structure of vegetal phytoxins, structure and function of metalloproteins (superoxide dismutase), NMR structural study of bioactive peptides, nucleic acids, solid state NMR, and food chemistry. He is considered an expert within the NMR community.
