Dr. Carey Satterfield is an associate professor in the physiology of reproduction section of the Department of Animal Science. He is also a member of the graduate faculty. Dr. Satterfield received a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science in 1999 followed by a masters and doctorate degree in Physiology of Reproduction in 2005 and 2008, respectively, all from Texas A&M University. Satterfield then completed postdoctoral studies in growth and nutrition at Texas A&M University in 2009.
Dr. Satterfield’s research interests are focused on the long-term consequences of maternal nutrition on fetal and postnatal growth and development using sheep as his primary animal model. In addition, Dr. Satterfield studies the role of nutraceuticals in fetal brown adipose tissue development and the ability of offspring to regulate their core body temperature during periods of cold stress. His teaching interests include general reproductive and placental physiology as well as fetal growth and development.
Dr. Satterfield’s professional memberships include the Society for the Study of Reproduction.
