The researcher holds a degree in Chemical Engineering from the Federal University of Pará (2000), a Master's degree in Chemical Engineering from the State University of Campinas (2002) and a PhD in Biotechnology from the Technical University of Lisbon (Portugal) (2007). She worked as a researcher at the company NANOCORE Biotecnologia LTDA (Campinas, SP) coordinating a project to develop the process of production of nucleic acids and recombinant protein for veterinary application, from January to December 2008, with a research grant from CNPq. From 2009 to 2016, she worked as a researcher at the National Bioethanol Science and Technology Laboratory (CTBE/CNPEM) and coordinated the CTBE Bioprocess Development facility from 2014 to 2016. Developed a research activity in a project in the field of metabolic engineering of thermophilic bacteria at Dartmouth College (USA) from June to December 2017 as a visiting researcher. She is currently a Collaborating Researcher at the Faculty of Chemical Engineering of UNICAMP. Dra Azzoni´s main research line is the development of bacterial cell factories using tools of metabolic engineering, genetic engineering and biochemical engineering for the production of biofuels and renewable chemicals. The researcher has experience in the development of P, D & I project in partnership with the university and industry, (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
We propose a potentially transformative new approach for overcoming the lignocellulose recalcitrance barrier. Instead of thermochemical pretreatment prior to biological processing, we propose physical disruption during biological processing - termed "cotreatment". Although milling is known to be too energy-intensive to be practical for pretreatment followed by fungal cellulase-mediated...
Biomass conversion by enzymatic hydrolysis still represents a high cost step for production of second generation ethanol. To overcome this drawback it is important increase the enzyme efficiency, obtaining balanced cocktails tailored made for each pretreated biomass and decrease production costs by using genetics tools for enzyme engineering and by production process optimization. The o...
We propose a research project with the objective of generating new strains of C. thermocellum with better capacity to produce ethanol and familiarize the principal investigator with techniques of metabolic engineering of thermophilic bacteria. This proposal for a short-term research project is complementary to the regular research project approved by FAPESP (2015 / 25866-6), in which a ...
