Research Interests: Dr. Theobald is interested in the regulation and interaction of the urinary tract. Although it is known that the urinary tract collects then eliminates urine, this seemingly simply task requires the complex integration of neural and muscular components at multiple levels. The research is designed to study the neurotransmitters, autonomic and purinergic, in the neural pathways involved in urinary tract interaction. Information provided by these studies should lead to a better understanding of the complete urinary tract and dysfunctions, such as interstitial cystitis. The studies also focus on the role of purines and other putative neurotransmitters in the lower urinary tract.
