Dr Amanda Genders

BSc(Hons)(UTAS), PhD (UTAS)

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Institute of Sport, Exercise & Active Living (ISEAL)

Dr Genders is a postdoctoral research fellow within the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Active Living (ISEAL). Amanda received her PhD from the University of Tasmania where she examined cGMP phosphodiesterases and in particular their role in the regulation of blood flow and glucose metabolism in skeletal muscle. After completing her PhD studies Amanda held postdoctoral positions at the University of Virginia and Deakin University. Her current research is investigating the effects of pH and exercise on skeletal muscle mitochondria.
