Academic Bio

Dr. Amann is an Associate Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine and Adjunct Associate Professor in the Departments of Anesthesiology and Bioemgineering at the University of Utah. He is studying the role of group III/IV muscle afferents in regulating ventilatory and cardiovascular responses to physical activity in humans and the role of these neurons in the development of fatigue. Dr. Amann is currently focusing on molecular receptors linked to these sensory neurons. Furthermore, Dr. Amann is investigating the impact of cardiovascular diseases on group III/IV-mediated feedback and associated receptors and to what extent these alterations contribute to the circulatory abnormalities and the premature fatigue characterizing patients with heart failure or hypertension. More information about Dr. Amann's research can be found at the Utah Vascular Research Laboratory, of which he is a member.
