Patrick J. Stover
Stover joined the Texas A&M University System in 2018 and also serves as Vice Chancellor and Dean for Agriculture and Life Sciences at Texas A&M AgriLife. Previously, he served as director of the Cornell University Division of Nutritional Sciences, one of the leading nutrition programs in the world. The division grew markedly during his tenure both in its research funding and its portfolio of academic programs. Stover led efforts to aggressively recruit and diversify the faculty, secure extramural research support, and expand the division’s audiences through on-campus and distance education. He also created key partnerships with external groups such as the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as with the private sector. Stover led a research group that investigates the mechanisms underlying the relationships among nutrition, metabolism, and risk for birth defects, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases.
A first-generation college student, Dr. Stover graduated from Saint Joseph’s University with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, went on to earn a doctorate in biochemistry and molecular biophysics from the Medical College of Virginia, and then completed his postdoctoral studies in nutritional sciences at the University of California, Berkeley.
