Carolina is a neuroscientist committed to understanding the mechanisms associated with chronic pain. Chronic neuropathic pain arises as a consequence of peripheral injuries which induce dramatic changes in the repertoire and abundance of ion channels in sensory neurons, resulting in spontaneous activity and decreased triggering thresholds of action potentials. As neuroscientist, her goal is to achieve a comprehensive understanding about nerve repair and regenerative mechanisms after peripheral injury. Also she is interested in validating new peripheral biomarkers for an accessible and proper diagnosis of neuropathic pain. Currently she is a researcher of the Latin American Brain Health Institute (BrainLat, Universidad Adolfo Ibañez) and young Investigator of the Translational Pain Research Millennium Nucleus (MinusPain). She has also participated in outreach activities working as scientific advisor in institutions such as Biomedical Neuroscience Institute (BNI), Fundación Ciencia Impacta and PentaUC. She considers herself as a determined, compassionate, responsible and organized woman.
