I've developed different pharmaceutical strategies to find new treatments for chronic pain, by targeting pannexin 1 channel, a protein expressed in the central nervous system that is crucial in the beginning and maintenance of this chronic disease. I discovered during my PhD studies that pannexin 1 participated on pain circuitry and since then, I've focused my career on targeting this protein.

So far, I've been able to block chronic pain sensation for 8 days in an animal model of neuropathic pain, by using nanotechnology and commercially available pannexin 1 blockers. I've patented this technology together with the Universidad de Santiago de Chile (USACH).

Now, I'm looking for investment to synthesize and test novel molecules I've designed, based on the crystallographic structure of pannexin 1, to combine with nanoparticles and begin non-clinical trials of these new molecules....
