Projects per year
Dr Djordje Jakovljevic is a Professor and Lead for the Clinical Sciences and Translational Medicine Research Theme within the Centre for Health and Life Sciences at the Institute for Health and Wellbeing. He joined Coventry University in July 2020 where he established Cardiovascular and Lifestyle Medicine Research Group. Between 2009 and 2020, Dr Jakovljevic developed and successfully led research programme in cardiovascular ageing and heart failure under academic mentorship of Professor Sir Doug Turnbull at Faculty of Medical Sciences of Newcastle University. Djordje completed Doctoral training in heart failure and clinical cardiovascular physiology at Buckinghamshire University and Harefield Hospital under mentorship of Professor David Brodie and Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub. Prior to doctoral training he also completed a MSc (Brunel University, London) and BSc (University of Belgrade, Serbia). Due to excellent academic achievements at undergraduate and postgraduate studies he received several highly prestigious scholarships and awards, including those from the Royal Family of Serbia, Government of Serbia, Brunel and Buckinghamshire Universities.
Development, evaluation and implementation of novel interventions and technologies to improve prevention, diagnosis and management of cardiovascular diseases. Our research has particularly focused on heart failure, from improving diagnosis and rehabilitation, to treatment and recovery of advanced heart failure using mechanical circulatory support. The research has further improved understanding of cardiovascular physiological and molecular changes with ageing and their malleability with lifestyle (physical activity and exercise) and pharmacological interventions to prevent onset of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
We endeavour a multidisciplinary cardiovascular research with colleagues at Coventry University, University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, national and international partners, to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease and heart failure, leading to improved length and quality of life of people across the world.
