Annegreet Veldhuis-Vlug (1982) is an internist-endocrinologist working in the Jan van Goyen Medical Center and OLVG Hospital in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and a postdoctoral researcher in the Rosen lab at the Center for Clinical and Translational Research in the Maine Medical Center Research Institute in Scarborough, USA.

She received her MD in 2007 (Leiden University) and started her internal medicine residency in the Medical Center Haaglanden in the Hague, the Netherlands in 2008.

She interrupted her residency for a 3-year PhD project focusing on the neuroendocrine regulation of human bone metabolism at the University of Amsterdam where she obtained her PhD in 2015.

During her PhD project, she started a collaboration with prof. Clifford Rosen on the effect of estrogen on human bone marrow adiposity and to continue this research, she joined the Rosen lab in 2017 as a postdoc focusing on the regulation of human bone marrow adiposity by parathyroid hormone and follicle stimulating hormone.

After her return to the Netherlands, she specialized in bone disease during a clinical fellowship in the Bone Center of the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, before registering as a internist-endocrinologist in 2018.

Since then, she has been working as an internist-endocrinologist in the Jan van Goyen Medical Center and OLVG Hospital in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, with a special focus on osteoporosis.

In the meantime, she will continue her research on endocrine regulation of human bone marrow adiposity in collaboration with the Rosen lab.
