My research interest is complementary to my clinical work. My general aim is to better understand the mechanisms behind neuropathic pain. I study both animal models and patients employing a variety of techniques ranging from transgenic mouse models to human psychophysical studies and genetics. I currently have two active lines: neuropathic pain in dermatological diseases, and pain modulation by potassium channels. Apart from research, I currently attend a chronic pain patient unit twice a week within the Interdisciplinary Pain Management Team at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
