Welcome Assistant Professor
Manda Keller-Ross, PhD, DPT
Manda L. Keller-Ross is pleased to accept an Assistant Professor appointment in the Program in Physical Therapy at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Keller-Ross completed her undergraduate degree here at the University of Minnesota in Kinesiology. She then earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. She began practicing physical therapy at the VA Medical Center and simultaneously began her PhD at Marquette University investigating central and peripheral mechanisms of skeletal muscle fatigability in the presence of acute and chronis stress.
Upon completion of her PhD, she commenced a three-year post-doctoral fellowship training at the Mayo Clinic in Cardiovascular Diseases. Her primary research at Mayo included investigating mechanisms of exercise limitation in patients with heart failure, specifically how group III and IV skeletal muscle afferents contributed to blood pressure regulation and ventilatory control during exercise.
Dr. Keller-Ross's primary research interest at the University of Minnesota is 1) to investigate neuromuscular mechanisms contributing to exercise intolerance (symptoms of breathlessness and fatigue and low peak oxygen consumption (VO2)) in patients with heart failure and 2) to identify novel therapeutic interventions to improve exercise and functional capacity and mortality in heart failure.
Dr. Keller-Ross will be the Director of the Physiology course and provide consultation to the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation course in the Program in Physical Therapy. She will also be working on developing initiatives to expand the role of the physical therapist in cardiac rehabilitation in both the acute and chronic setting.
