Professor Bueno is the coordinator of the Nanobionics research group ( at São Paulo State University, UNESP. He published over 170 papers related to the applications or development of mainly electric and electrochemistry time-dependent (including also gravimetric and optical impedance) spectroscopic methods (h index 41 > 6000 citations and with an average citation of about 20 per article ? Google Scholar). His main scientific interest is focused on the fundamental aspects and technological applications involving electron charge transfer and transport as well as the charge storage occurring in molecular and biomolecular structures. Under his guidance Nanobionics group develops synthetic structures and surfaces that mimic molecular and biological structures to be used, for instance, in highly-relevant medical diagnostic devices. The Nanobionics group was responsible for the development of a totally new label-free diagnostic assay and electroanalytical spectroscopic methodology supported on the use of the electrochemical capacitance, a capacitance proportional to the electrochemical density of states (EDOS) that intrinsically exist in mesoscopic structures comprised of redox-active molecules attached to metallic probes and that are particularly named as Electrochemical Capacitive Assays (ECA). The ECA assays are able to detect target protein at femtomolar levels allowing the establishment of early detection assay platforms for clinically important targets that are better than those currently in use and are potentially cheap and useful in multiplexed and bedside like-diagnostics, technologies. Other relevant aspects of his groups? activities are the synthesis of self-assembled redox-tagged peptides and its applications in redox capacitive biosensors. The advantages of constructing a peptide-based receptive surface containing electrochemical tags are that peptides can be easily manipulated and optimized to be applied directly in complex biological environments avoiding fouling and additionally antibodies/antigens can be substituted by peptide aptamers with equivalent affinity and specificity for the clinical target proteins. In the molecular design and surface engineering context the Nanobionics group is supported by computational chemistry expertise and tools such as molecular dynamics (MD) and density functional theory (DFT) based methods. Professor Bueno acted as academic and researcher visitor in several European universities such as Universities of Valence and Jaume I (Spain), University of Paris (France) and University of Oxford (UK). Since 2015 he is a member of American Chemical Society (ACS), member of The Electrochemical Society (ECS) and International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE), Research Fellow Director of the Royal Society ( and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC).
