Research Theme

Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience

Interests

I am interested in the role of ion channels expressed in peripheral sensory neurones and involved in pain perception in different pathological conditions such as inflammation or nerve injury. In particular, I am interested in understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie pain perception in rheumatoid arthritis, specially in the identification of ion channels involved in the enhanced pain perception in these conditions.
