Dr. Bothwell

Dr. Bothwell's research focuses on the regulatory functions of growth factors, particularly the role of growth factors in mediating trophic interactions in the developing nervous system. His laboratory is also interested in the functions of growth factors in the processes of memory and learning, in the repair of nervous system injury, and in neurodegenerative conditions.

Bothwell's studies are focused primarily on a family of neurotrophic growth factors known as neurotrophins and on their receptors. However, as neurotrophin receptors are multifunctional proteins that influence the function of a variety of membrane proteins, studies of neurotrophin receptor function are not limited to studies of neurotrophin action but encompass a variety of signaling systems including signaling responsible for restricting the capacity of damaged brain and spinal cord tissue to regenerate.
