Laboratory of Mammary Gland Development
group leader




Jacqueline Veltmaat
received her Ph.D. in 2001
from the Utrecht University,
for her thesis on parietal endoderm,
carried out at the Hubrecht Institute or the
Netherlands Institute for Developmental Biology.

A post-doctoral fellowship from the Fifth Framework
of the European Commission enabled her to subsequently
begin her research on the molecular regulation of the induc-
tion of mammary glands, at the Curie Institute in Paris, France.

From 2003 onwards, she continued this research as a Research
Associateat the Saban Research Institute in Los Angeles, U.S.A.,
with support from fellowships from the California Breast Cancer
Research Program and the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

In 2006, she was appointed Assistant Professor at the Institute of
Molcular and Cell Biology in Singapore, which is funded by A*STAR
(Agency of Science, Technology and Research). Here, she continues
to unravel the molecular and cellular mechanisms of
mammary gland induction and morphogenesis.

Since 2007, Jacqueline also holds an adjunct Assistant
Professorship at the Department of Anatomy, Yong
Loo Lin School of Medicine, National
University of Singapore.
