My main interest focuses on the development, behaviour and therapeutical treatment of cancerous diseases. In detail I am interested in the role of ionic channels and channelopathies in the development of cancer. I would like to understand the functions of the nervous system on a molecular level and how neuronal disorders develop. I hope to be able to contribute to the development of advanced therapies in the future.
