Marcela Nunes Argentin is a Technical Training researcher at the Institute of Physics of São Carlos, University of São Paulo, where she participates in the project "Evaluation of antibacterial activity, cytotoxicity, and efficacy against bacterial biofilms of compounds linked to the Center for Research and Innovation in Biodiversity and Pharmaceuticals CIBFar, carried out in conjunction with the Laboratory of Epidemiology and Molecular Microbiology (LEMiMo). She holds a degree in Physical and Biomolecular Sciences from the University of São Paulo and was a student of scientific initiation in the "Sérgio Mascarenhas" Group of Biophysics and Structural Biology, where she worked with anaerobic microorganisms from petroleum reservoirs. In the same group, she completed her Master's and Ph.D. degrees through the Applied Physics program for Molecular Biology at the University of São Paulo, focusing on the search for thermo-halophilic microorganisms producing biosurfactants isolated from petroleum reservoirs. She has experience in the areas of Microbiology, production, purification, and characterization of biosurfactants, as well as tests of antimicrobial activity against resistant microorganisms. The researcher is also responsible for operating the Omnilog (Biolog) equipment, a multi-user tool acquired through CIBFar.
