Gary J. Hausman
University of Georgia
Dr. Gary J. Hausman completed his Ph.D. in meat science/muscle biology in 1977 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Hausman was a research physiologist with the USDA-ARS since 1980 [GS 15 researcher since 1993] and is currently an Adjunct Professor in Animal and Dairy Science at the University of Georgia. The research efforts of Dr. Hausman has enhanced our present knowledge of the cellular/molecular structure, function and regulation of cells of the adipogenic lineage and will serve as groundwork as the field of adipocyte regulation expands. Developing the first preadipocyte antibody allowed him to demonstrate interrelationships with vascular, muscle, and immune system development during normal growth and development. He has collaborated with an international group of peers, which has perpetuated his research efforts a hundred fold. Dr. Hausman has produced Ph.D. graduates, post-doctoral fellows, visiting scientists and present collaborators which lead the field in basic adipocyte, muscle, growth and development and applied research. He also has mentored 8 Ph.D and several Masters students. Dr. Hausman has authored or co-authored 218 scientific articles published in refereed journals (receiving >4300 citations; h-index = 33), 48 reviews and has given 24 invited presentations at national and international scientific meetings. Dr. Hausman authored a major invited review for Annual Reviews of Animal Biosciences in 2014. He serves as an associate editor for the Journal of Food, Agriculture and Environment, the Adipobiology journal and the International Bioscience Animal journal. Furthermore, Dr. Hausman serves on the editorial board of the Adipocytes journal. Dr. Hausman established the editorial board for a new journal titled Adipocytes and served as Editor-in Chief until the journal was terminated as a consequence of the loss of publishing facilities due to hurricane Katrina. His many awards include Outstanding Young Animal Scientist Award of the ASAS - Southern Section (1986), the 1993 ASAS Animal Growth and Development Award and was name a Fellow of the American Society of Animal Science in 2011. Dr. Hausman organized and chaired several major symposia for the Federation of American Societies of Experimental Biology (FASEB) and American Society of Animal Science annual meetings.
