Slavica Ražić graduated from the University of Belgrade, Faculty of Pharmacy, where she obtained the title MS and later PhD for the doctorate conducted at the Faculty of Chemistry - Department of Analytical Chemistry (2000). Since 2012. Slavica Ražić is a full professor in the Department of Analytical Chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy - University of Belgrade. She was the Head of the Department of Analytical Chemistry from 2000 to 2007 and will hold this position again from 2022. She supervised a large number of undergraduate and postgraduate student theses (MS and PhD theses) and was a member of PhD thesis defence committees and election committees in Serbia, Spain, Greece, Austria and Macedonia.

Slavica's main research interests are in the analysis of environmental and biological samples, development of analytical methods in combination with modern sample preparation techniques and chemometric analytical methods. Another focus is on (i) risk and toxicity assessment of various compounds in the context of environmental and human health effects and (ii) analytical aspects of green chemistry and its role/applications in pharmaceutical sciences.

Since 2002, she has been the Chair of the Analytical Chemistry Division of the Serbian Chemical Society (SCS) and also represents SCS in the Analytical Chemistry Division of the European Chemical Society (DAC-EuChemS). She was the Chair of DAC-EuChemS in 2017-2022. Slavica Ražić is currently a member of the EuChemS Executive Board. From 2012 to 2016 she was the Vice President of SCS and since 2013 Slavica Ražić has been the official representative of SCS in IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) and also an Associate member of the Analytical Chemistry Division (ACD) from 2016 to 2017.

Academic Awards and Honours: Honorary Member of SCS for exceptional contributions (2017), Meritorious Member of SCS for activities and contributions (2008), Annual Award of the Belgrade Chamber of Commerce for the best PhD thesis in 2001 (2001).

Slavica is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Serbian Chemical Society and Editor-in-Charge of Analytical Chemistry. She is also a member of the international advisory boards of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry (Springer), Advances in Sample Preparation (Elsevier) and Journal of Research in Pharmacy. She serves as an editor and reviewer for about 40 international journals. Slavica has been chair/member of scientific and organising committees of numerous international and national conferences.
