Slavica Ražić graduated from the University of Belgrade, Faculty of Pharmacy, from which she obtained the MS degree. For PhD accomplished at the Faculty of Chemistry - Department of analytical chemistry (2000). Since 2012. Slavica Ražić is a full professor in the Department of Analytical Chemistry of the Faculty of Pharmacy - University of Belgrade. She served as the Head of the Institute of Analytical Chemistry (2003-2007). In 2014 she accomplished the Specialist Academic Studies at the Faculty of Pharmacy on Toxicological risk assessment for environmental pollutants. She supervised a great number of students' works on undergraduate and postgraduate levels (MS and PhD Theses) and acted as a member of committees for defending PhD theses and electing committees in Serbia, Spain, Greece, Austria and Macedonia.

Slavica's main research interests lie in the analytics of environmental and biological samples, in method development and the monitoring of trace and minor elements using atomic absorption and emission spectrometry (F-AAS, F-AES, GF-AAS, ICP-AES and ICP-MS) combined with contemporary sample preparation techniques and chemometric methods of analysis. Established objectives are: elucidation of the bioavailability, mobility, distribution and accumulation of elemental species in different environmental compartment with their impact on human health protection. In addition, the next area includes GC-MS (BVOCs analysis), HPTLC and HPLC analysis of biological active organic compounds in plants important in phytopharmacy and forensic science. Another extension is going to (i) direction of the risk and toxicity assessment and of various compounds, related to environment and human health impact and (ii) analytical aspects of green chemistry and its role/applications in pharmaceutical sciences.

Since 2002, she has chaired the Division of the Analytical Chemistry of the Serbian Chemical Society (SCS), acting also as a representative of SCS in the Division of Analytical Chemistry of the European Chemical Society (DAC-EuChemS). She started her term as Chairperson of the DAC-EuChemS in 2017 and was re-elected in 2019 for the second term of 2020-2022. Slavica is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Serbian Chemical Society and responsible Editor for Analytical Chemistry. Additional editorial activities are reported for about 25 international and several domestic journals. In a period 2012-2016 she served as the Vice-president of the Serbian Chemical Society (SCS) and from 2013 Slavica is acting as official representative of the SCS in the IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry), being also a member of its Analytical Chemistry Division from 2016 to 2017. Slavica Ražić is elected to the EuCheMs Executive Board of European Chemical Society (EuChemS), with term starting on 1 January 2021.

Academic awards and distinctions: The Honorary member the Serbian Chemical Society for exceptional contribution (2017), The Merit Member of the Serbian Chemical Society for activities and contribution (2008), Annual award of the Chamber of Commerce of Belgrade for the best Doctorial dissertation in 2001 (2001).
