Mario Murakami is the scientific director of the Brazilian Biorenewables National Laboratory (since 2018) and former coordinator of the macromolecular crystallography village at the Brazilian National Center for Research in Energy and Materials (2010-2017). He obtained Ph.D. degree in molecular biophysics (2006) from the State University of São Paulo with a split Ph.D. at the University of Hamburg and German Electron Synchrotron DESY. He worked with the structural elucidation of macromolecular complexes involved in the inhibition and activation of coagulation cascade and mechanochemical enzymes during his post-docs at UNESP and Rutgers University. His current research interests encompass the discovery and mechanistic understanding of CAZymes and the genetic engineering of filamentous fungi for enzyme production [1]. He has contributed to structural and functional studies of CAZymes from families GH1 [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7], GH2 [8], GH5 [9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14], GH7 [15], GH8 [16], GH10 [17, 18, 19], GH11 [20, 21, 22], GH12 [23, 24, 25], GH16 [26, 27], GH26 [28], GH39 [29, 30], GH42 [31], GH43 [32, 33, 34], GH45 [35], GH51 [36, 37], GH54 [38], GH57 [39], GH128 [40] and AA10 [41].

Particularly notable works include the systematic biochemical and structural investigation of the GH128 family [40], the development of a cellulase hyper-secreting strain [1], the elucidation of the molecular basis for Man-β-1,4-GlcNAc [14] and xyloglucan [12] specificity in the GH5 family, the discovery of a GH10 reducing end xylose-releasing exo-oligoxylanase [19], the mechanistic understanding and rational redesign of rumen metagenome GH43 arabinanases [32] and the uncovering of the structural determinants for glucose tolerance in GH1 beta-glucosidases [2, 7].
