Wageningen University has appointed two new special professors. As of 1 June, Ruerd Ruben and Ynte Schukken now work in Wageningen one day a week.
Ruben, programme leader at LEI Wageningen UR, will look into the impact of policy on food security. Schukken will do research on animal health problems typically found on farms, such as mastitis and lameness in cattle. He will continue to work as director of the animal health service (GD), which is also funding the professorship.
