Javier Camacho has studied Ion Channels involved in Cancer for almost 20 years. Several patents have been filed based on the findings of his group. He focuses his research in finding early tumor markers and novel therapeutic targets for Cervical, Liver and Lung Cancer. He studies ion channel gene and protein expression in human cell lines, in vivo cancer models and human biopsies. His group also investigates the effect of ion channel blockers on the proliferation of human cell lines; primary cultures from human biopsies; and the preventive and therapeutic effect of such blockers on tumor development in vivo.
