Renata F. V. Lopez holds a degree in Pharmacy-Biochemistry, a master's in Drug and Medication Sciences, and a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences, all completed at the Ribeirão Preto School of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of São Paulo (FCFRP-USP). She conducted a Sandwich Doctorate at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, where she studied the transdermal penetration of drugs associated with iontophoresis, and a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, where she focused on nanoparticulate drug delivery systems, including ultrasound-assisted penetration of drugs through complex biological membranes, such as the skin. She is a Full Professor at FCFRP-USP and heads the Center for Innovation in Nanostructured Systems and Topical Administration (NanoTop). The main focus of her research group is to investigate the transdermal and ocular permeation of drugs and the influence of nanoparticulate delivery systems and iontophoresis on this permeation.She has authored numerous scientific articles in highly selective editorial policy journals, books, book chapters, and patents. She has supervised over 30 doctoral theses and master's dissertations, guided more than 20 undergraduate research students, and supervised the work of at least 7 postdoctoral fellows. She has received several awards and honors, including two CAPES Thesis Awards in the field of Pharmacy, in 2011 and 2015, as a supervisor of the works. She coordinates projects funded by FAPESP, CNPq, and CAPES and is involved in various international collaborative projects. She was the coordinator of the Graduate Program in Pharmaceutical Sciences at FCFRP-USP from 2014 to 2018. Currently, she serves as Vice-President of the Graduate Committee at FCFRP-USP. She leads a thematic project funded by FAPESP (2023-2028), a subproject funded by INCT-NanoFarma, and participates in the collaborative international project BRICS STI COVID.She has significant international collaborations, including an agreement for dual-degree programs with Université Paris-Saclay, France, and partnerships with the University of Geneva, Switzerland, and the University of Lagos, Nigeria. She is the President of the organizing committee of CIFARP 2023, leader of the international chapter of the Controlled Release Society (CRS) in the CRS Women in Sciences, a member of the advisory board of the Brazilian Association of Pharmaceutical Sciences (ABCF), founder and member of the CRS Brazilian Local Chapter, Vice-Coordinator of the Support Center for Ocular Pathophysiology and Therapy (NAPFTO), and a member of the INCT-NanoFarma.
