Stefan Gelineo (1898-1971) was a Serbian scientist who by his contributions to the study of hypothermia -- the study of vital functions under low temperatures -- garnered an international reputation along with Ivan Đaja, Radoslav Andjus and Vojislav Petrović.

Stefan Gelineo was among the earliest research assistants to work with Ivan Đaja. Gelineo is credited with the founding of the Chair for physiology at the Serbian Institute for Physiology, rector of the University of Belgrade, member of the Serbian Academy of Sciences, and a prominent architect of its early 20th-century development.[1]

He was born in 1889 in Stari Grad on the island of Hvar. He studied in Leipzig and Vienna and afterwards taught at Belgrade University and became a member of the Belgrade School of Physiology. He is a follower of the work of Ivan Đaja.[2]

He died in Belgrade in 1971.


Stefan Gelineo authored 141 scientific and 14 popular science works. Here are just some:

  • Animal heat and its maintenance, 1934.
  • New tests of basal metabolism, 1935.
  • Adjustment temperature and ground level, 1937.
