Srdjan M. Vlajkovic

University of Auckland, New Zealand


Full Name: Srdjan Vlajkovic Academic degree: MD, PhD Current position: Senior Lecturer Department: Physiology Organization: University of Auckland Country: New Zealand E-mail: Dr Vlajkovic completed his doctorate in Neuroscience at the University of Belgrade in 1990. He joined the Department of Physiology at the University of Auckland in 1994, where he is currently a Senior Lecturer in Sensory Neuroscience. His principal research interest is in the field of Auditory Neuroscience, and he studies the cellular and molecular basis of cochlear homeostasis in conditions of stress and injury. His primary focus is on the role of oxidative stress and inflammation in the development of noise-induced and age-related hearing loss. Dr Vlajkovic’s work to date has demonstrated a role of extracellular nucleotides and nucleosides as molecular messengers that are integral to the function of the inner ear. Dr Vlajkovic’s programme of research incorporates a series of projects that directly investigate the protective role of adenosine and ATP on the development of noise-induced cochlear injury and other forms of oxidative stress in the inner ear.
