Renée de Cremoux received her veterinary degree in 1991 (University of Toulouse, France) and a Diploma of Advanced Studies in Biology and Agronomy (University of Rennes, France) in 1994. She joined the Dairy products and Animal Health Department of the French Livestock Institute as a project leader in 1993. Since 2009, she contributes to the management of the Mixt Technological Unit on Small Ruminants Health in association with the national veterinary school of Toulouse, first in the fields of mastitis control and milk quality and since 2015, of adaptation of sanitary control of farming systems to new societal issues. She has been coordinating the MTU since 2018. Since 2012, she contributes to the French platform for animal health surveillance and in particular to the deployment of an observatory on ruminant abortive diseases (since 2017).

In the course of her activity on animal health, she sets up applied studies requiring multidisciplinary approaches and investigates small ruminant abortive diseases, milk quality, the monitoring of milk and cheese microbial ecosystems or, more recently, the development of new tools and approaches for high-throughput phenotyping, for addressing new selection goals and for improving knowledge of mastitis risk factors. She is currently working on the impact of milking conditions on the occurrence of intramammary infections with a particular focus on milking ability and the animal-machine-milker interface.

Since 2010, she is member of the editorial board of the “Bulletin des GTV” (peer-reviewed professional journal for veterinarians) for appraisal in small ruminant health topics. In terms of training of the breeders and their advisors, she develops training and outreach materials to help control diseases and reduce the use of antibiotics in flocks.
