Celso Sant’Anna received his BS in Microbiology and Immunology, MSc in Biophysics and PhD in Science from Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Brazil, in 2000, 2003 and 2007, respectively. Presently, Celso is researcher from the Directory of Metrology Applied to Life Science (Dimav) of the Brazilian National Institute of Metrology, Quality and Technology (Inmetro). He is ahead of group of microscopy at Dimav/ Inmetro, which the main focus is to develop methods of biometrological analysis in the field of bionanotechnology. The major aspects of his work are the investigation of the ultrastructural sugarcane cell wall organization and its degradability by different pretreatments, as well as, the eco-friendly production, characterization and antimicrobial effect of metallic nanoparticles. Our researches include microscopy approaches such as, laser scanning confocal microscopy, super resolution light microscopy, transmission and scanning electron microscopy, focused ion beam scanning electron microscopy, electron tomography and atomic force microscopy.
