About the event

Dr. Vlajkovic's principal research interest is in the field of Auditory  Neuroscience. His research focus is on molecular mechanisms of  sensorineural hearing loss and development of inner ear therapeutics.  His programme of research incorporates a series of projects that  directly investigate the role of adenosine and ATP signalling in the  development of cochlear injury and adaptation to noise. His research has  contributed to current understanding of the role of adenosine receptors  in repair of cochlear injury and restoration of hearing. His  translational research in this area has implications for the treatment  of several forms of sensorineural hearing loss, such as those induced by  exposure to noise, ototoxic drugs, cochlear implantation and ageing.
