Birthplace: Brazil

He has a bachelor's degree and a degree in Chemistry from the State University of Campinas, a master's degree in Functional and Molecular Biology (2000) and a doctorate in Functional and Molecular Biology from the State University of Campinas (2003). Full professor in Chemistry at Universidade Estadual Paulista Julio de Mesquita Filho (2011). He is currently an Associate Professor at Universidade Estadual Paulista Júlio de Mesquita Filho - Sorocaba Campus at the Department of Environmental Engineering and in the Postgraduate Programs in Environmental Sciences (master's/doctorate) and Materials Science and Technology (master's/doctorate). He was coordinator of the Postgraduate Program in Environmental Sciences at Unesp/Sorocaba (2012-2016). He was a full member as teaching representative of the ICTS at the University Council (2020 - 2022) and member of the Advisory Committee of the Central Chamber of Postgraduate Studies at Unesp (CAPG - 2019 - 2021). It has scientific collaboration with several research groups from different national institutions (Unicamp, UEL, UFLA, Embrapa, Unipampa, Uniso, USP, UFSCar, UFSM etc.) and international institutions from different countries (United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Austria, Germany , India, Mexico, Canada, USA among others). He is currently part of the editorial board of the journals: Scientífic reports (Nature group), PLOS One, Frontiers in Chemistry, Ecology, Energy and Environment (Springer), Journal of Bionanotechnology (Springer Nature), as well as reviewer for several scientific journals. Over the years, it has obtained financial assistance with the participation of other researchers and institutions (research assistance, arrival of researchers from abroad, visits abroad, bilateral cooperation research projects), as well as scholarships (IC, MS, DR, post-doc ) from various funding agencies (CNPq, CAPES, FAPESP) and companies. He is a member of the Brazilian Society for the Progress of Science (SBPC), Brazilian Chemical Society (SBQ), Brazilian Society for Research in Materials (SBPmat), American Chemical Society (ACS), ASTOXILATIN - Latin American Association of Environmental, Experimental and NanomaterialsToxicology Association, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), the latter being a Fellow (FRSC - 2018). He is also a Fellow of Vebleo, a Fellow of the International Association of Advanced Materials, a Fellow of the Society of Plant Research and a member of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC - 2018 - current). He is currently Chair of the American Chemical Society Brazil Chapter (2022-current management) and was co-chair (2019-2021 management) and member of the Board of Directors (Treasurer) of the American Chemical Society Brazil Chapter (2018-2019 management). Member of the Agroecosystem Specialist Group of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN-CEM). Member of the European Science Foundation College of Expert Reviewers (2020). Associate Member of the Trottier Institute for Sustainability in Engineering and Design (TISED - McGill University - 2021). It has 15 patent applications and 1 software registration, 5 letters patent, and 4 licensed technologies. Among his awards, in 2004 and 2005, he received the José Carlos Ferraro Maia Award promoted by Cristalia Ind. Farmaceuticas and SBA, in 2010 second place in the Monsanto Agroambiental Award, in 2011 he received the Química Nova award for Young Authors from SBQ, in 2020 he received the IAAM Scientist Award and in 2021 winner of the Minds of Innovation Award - Bayer.

FAPESP Week France 2019 | Leonardo Fernandes Fraceto

Published in November 25, 2019 - Agência FAPESP. Technical Session 6: Materials, Nano or Bionano. Nano-based biopesticides: a new paradigm towards more sustainable agriculture. Pesticides are widely used to enhance agriculture yields, although the fraction of the pesticides applied in the field that reach the targets is less than 1%. Such indiscriminate use of chemical pesticides is disadvantageous due to the cost implications and increasing human health and environmental concerns. In recent years, the utilization of nanotechnology to create novel formulations has shown great potential for diminishing the indiscriminate use of pesticides and providing environmentally safer alternatives. In this context, nano-based biopesticides can be designed to efficiently delivery sufficient amounts of active ingredients in response to biotic and/or abiotic stressors that act as triggers, employing targeted and controlled release mechanisms. In this talk we will provide the last developments in nanotechnology applied to agriculture with focus in the understanding the mechanisms of action and toxicity and their potential to be used in sustainable agriculture, highlighting the challenges that need to be overcome in order to contribute to crop protection and increase food security.
