Angelika Doetzlhofer, PhD
Dr. Angelika Doetzlhofer is an associate professor of neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She serves on the faculty of the Johns Hopkins Center for Sensory Biology in the Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences.
Dr. Doetzlhofer’s research primarily seeks to identify and characterize the molecular mechanisms of hair-cell development in the mammalian auditory system – and to identify the molecular roadblocks that prevent mammalian hair cells from regenerating. This work has important clinical potential for the treatment of patients who suffer from hearing and balance disorders.
She earned both a Ph.D. in molecular biology and an M.S. in biochemistry at the University of Vienna in Austria.
Dr. Doetzlhofer completed a seven-year post-doctoral fellowship in cell and molecular biology—and served as a senior research associate—at House Research Institute before joining the Johns Hopkins faculty in November 2008.
