Giulia Moi (born 24 May 1971) is an Italian Member of the European Parliament for the Five Star Movement. She was elected in 2014.[1]

She graduated with a degree in biology[2] from the University of Cagliari and completed a PhD at King's College London entitled "Chemistry and Biological Activity of Kigelia pinnata Relevant to Skin Conditions".[3]

In 2010, she ran at the elections for the Province of Cagliari with the Christian Popular Union (which supported the centre-right candidate Graziano Milia), winning 16 votes.[4]

Later, she joined the Five Star Movement, with which she was elected at the 2014 European elections. Her candidature was met with some controversy by some Sardinians activists of the Movement, who later issued an open letter asking for more clarifications about her research activities: according to them, she «...did not provide any evidence, nor they can be found on the Internet». Giulia Moi rebuked the accusations, adding that «...researchers know that data from research programmes financed by international companies may be subject to restrictions, due to very strict contractual bindings.».[4][5]
