I am interested in studying peripheral ion channel mechanism of chronic pain associated with chemotherapy drug -induced peripheral neuropathy. Previously I have studied voltage-gated ion channels (sodium, potassium and calcium channels) and acid-sensitive ion channels (ASIC and TASK) in peripheral sensory cells. Currently I am studying the role of voltage-gated sodium and potassium channels in oxliplatin-induced pain.
