Amy Stieler Stewart, DVM, PhD, DACVIM

Assistant Research Professor


Dr. Amy Stieler Stewart is an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Clinical Sciences. Dr. Stewart is originally from Merritt Island, Florida and attended the University of Florida for her undergraduate and veterinary degrees (Go Gators!!). She then completed a one-year rotating internship in Large Animal Medicine and Surgery at the University of Georgia. She returned to the University of Florida in 2012, completed a three-year residency in Large Animal Medicine and became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in 2015. She then moved to Raleigh, joined NCSU and completed a PhD in Comparative Biomedical Sciences under the direction of Dr. Liara Gonzalez in 2019. Dr. Stewart’s research centers around the use of large animal models including the horse and pig to study gastrointestinal disease. She is currently developing models of equine intestinal injury using 2D and 3D epithelial stem cell culture and focusing on epithelial signaling mechanisms in intestinal repair after injury. In her free time, Dr. Stewart enjoys distance running, indoor cycling, college sports and spending time with her husband and son.
