Renée Båge is professor of domestic animal reproduction since 1 June 2022. Her inauguration lecture will be held in Swedish and has the title "Reproduktion – så mycket mer än ägg och spermier!".
Renée Båge researches reproduction and herd health in both large and small ruminants in Sweden and in low-income countries – for sustainable food production. Fertility is of great economic importance, but it is also an area with major potential for improvement. This has resulted in many interdisciplinary collaborative projects, often together with industry. These projects explore how management procedures, feeding, climate and breeding affect fertility and udder health. In parallel with her applied research, Renée Båge also maps reproduction at cell and gene level, ideally combining the two perspectives.
