Dr. Gry Boe-Hansen graduated with a DVM in 2001 and a PhD in Veterinary Reproduction in 2005 from The Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University (KVL) Denmark. She took up a position as Assistant Professor at the department of Veterinary Reproduction and Obstetrics at KVL. In 2007 she took up a position at UQ as Lecturer in Veterinary Reproduction at School of Veterinary Sciences, UQ. Her overall research theme is causes of and methods to improve suboptimal reproduction in livestock. She is particularly interested in andrology, with emphasis on genetic and environmental factors affecting reproduction and has published particularly in the field of sperm chromatin structure quality in relation to fertility. This has involved implementation of reliable, precise and accurate semen quality assays into conventional semen analysis, in both domestic animal semen laboratories and human clinics.
