Carlo Arnaudi (23 May 1899 – 23 April 1970) was an Italian microbiologist and socialist politician, who served as the first minister for science of Italy.
Arnaudi worked as professor of microbiology at the University of Milan. He was the head of Istituto Microbiologia Agraria e Tecnica. In 1940, he launched a scientific journal on microbiology, namely Annali di Microbiologia. He was the major political supporter of the International Laboratory of Genetics and Biophysics (ILGB) that was founded in Naples in 1962.
He also served as senator. He was appointed minister for scientific research to the center-left coalition government led by prime minister Aldo Moro in the late 1963. He proposed that the ministry should be institutionalized in order to make it more effective in coordinating research activities. However, this proposal led to severe criticisms due to power struggle among the ministers. He removed from office in a cabinet reshuffle in 1966.
