Jeffrey S. Otis

Emory University, USA


Jeffrey S. Otis received a B.S. degree in biology with minor emphasis on exercise physiology from The Pennsylvania State University in 1996. He completed his Ph.D. training at the Department of Human Foods, Nutrition, and Exercise at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University with specific focus on skeletal muscle physiology and biochemistry in 2003. For two years, he was an NRSA-funded Postdoctoral Fellow at Emory University in the Department of Pharmacology in the Laboratory of Dr. Grace Pavlath. In 2005, he began his second postdoctoral fellowship at the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine under the guidance of Dr. David Guidot. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division. Our research group focuses on skeletal muscle derangements that occur secondary to long-term alcohol abuse and/or HIV-1. In addition, we have recently begun experiments investigating the regenerative response of skeletal muscle from alcohol-fed or HIV-1 transgenic rats following trauma.
