FAPESP São Paulo Excellence Chair (SPEC), in experimental stage, aims at providing the coming of top notch scientists from abroad to create research nuclei in São Paulo universities. The projects are developed under the responsibility of a Principal Investigator, associated with higher education or research institutions in the State of São Paulo. The selection is through a peer-reviewing system.

    The objective of the proposed work is to move forward our understanding of the evolutionary adaptations of early life to the increasing atmospheric oxygen concentration. Our aim is to characterize the evolving biosphere and the changing environments across the 2.45 to 2.32 Ga old Great Oxidation Event and the ~0.8 to 0.54 Ga old Neoproterozoic Oxidation Event. To achieve this goal, we w...

  • Obtainment of polymer nanocomposites based on graphene oxide by melt intercalation, BE.PQ

    Obtainment of polymer nanocomposites based on g...

    This project has the main objective of developing a route of insertion of graphene oxide (GO) in polymeric matrixes in order to obtain a good dispersion and maintain the structural integrity of the nanoparticle. Two polymeric matrices will be used: polypropylene (PP) and poly (ethylene terephthalate) (PET). Are being sought, especially, improvements in the mechanical and barrier propert...

    Structural characterization of a membrane prote...

    The cell wall is an essential structure for bacterial survival, being responsible for several vital cellular functions such as division, elongation, secretion of virulence factors, and adhesion. Its main constituent is the peptidoglycan, a polymer formed by polymerized glycan chains cross-linked by stem peptides. The enzymes which participate in peptidoglycan synthesis act in an orchest...

    This is the work plan for the application of the post doctorate Henrique Oliveira Sawakuchi, at the Center of Nuclear Energy in Agriculture (CENA-USP), scholarship holder FAPESP 2014/21564-2. This research visit will be developed at University of Washington, Seattle, USA, supervised by Professor Richard Keil. The motivation of this internship is learning analytical procedures, data anal...
