Marco Aurélio Zezzi Arruda
Marco Aurélio Zezzi Arruda is the Director of the Institute of Chemistry – University of Campinas – Brazil, Full Professor at the University of Campinas – Unicamp (Campinas, Brazil), Department of Analytical Chemistry, head of the Sample preparation, spectrometry and mechanization group - GEPAM, and member of the advisory board of the National Institute of Science and Technology - INCT for Bioanalitics. Additionally, he acted as invited professor at Pau University – Pau, France, and at University of Ballears Island – Palma, Mallorca, Spain.
He belongs to the editorial staff or advisory board of the Metallomics, Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry, and Journal of Integrated Omics and Brazilian Journal of Analytical Chemistry. He acts as member of the advisory board of the Brazilian Mass Spectrometry Society (BrMASS) and Brazilian Chemistry Association (ABQ), and he is coordinator of the inorganic mass spectrometry area of the BrMASS.
He is the author or co-author over 200 research articles, 6-chapter books, 5 patents, over 50 invited lectures in national/international meetings, and Editor of 2 books (Trends in Sample Preparation and Metallomics: The science of biometals). Additionally, he has over 4000 citations in the literature and an h-index of 36.
The main research lines of his research group include bioanalytical with emphasis on metallomics and proteomics, mass (ICP-MS, LA-ICP-MS, MALDI-QTOF-MS, ESI-MS, TWIMS) and atomic spectrometry (ICP OES, ETAAS, FAAS, TS-FF-AAS), sample preparation, forensic and mechanization. His current research interests include transdisciplinary work involving speciation analysis and comparative omics of plants (i.e. soybean, sunflower, Arabidopsis Thaliana) and human body fluids (i.e. blood serum, urine, saliva) to identify possible biomarkers for transgenic species and human diseases, as well as to evaluate reactive oxygen species production, and (metallo)proteins responses under stress in a given system.
