Radoslav K. Andjus was a professor of physiology and biophysics at the University of Belgrade, Serbia, from 1953 to 1992. He was an elected member of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, the International Academy of Astronautics, and the Montenegrin Academy of Sciences and Arts. He published over 190 papers in domestic and international journals and three textbooks. The main field of his research was thermophysiology. He studied hypothermia, suspended animation and resuscitation, hibernation and biological rhythms, temperature adaptation and acclimation, and cryoprotection. Professor Andjus also contributed significantly to the fields of brain metabolism, endocrinology, electroretinography, as well as biophysical modeling and theoretical biology.
