Aleksandra Stefanović has been employed at the Department of Medical Biochemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Belgrade since 2002. She defended her doctoral thesis in 2011, and in 2013 she was elected to the position of assistant professor for the scientific field of Medical Biochemistry. She was elected to the position of associate professor in 2017.

Her teaching courses, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, are related to general biochemistry, medical biochemistry, laboratory endocrinology and laboratory statistics. She participated in the realization of two national and several international scientific projects, authored more than 80 scientific papers in relevant international journals (h-index: 21) and two university textbooks for Pharmacy students.  The scientific research interest of prof. Stefanović is mainly focused on the role of oxidative stress in different physiological and pathophysiological conditions. Her special interest is devoted to research of metabolic processes that accompany uncomplicated and high-risk pregnancies. Aleksandra Stefanović is a reviewer in numerous international and one national scientific journal. She is a board member of Serbian Biochemical Society, member of Serbian Society for Mitochondrial and Free-Radical Physiology and member of the Society of Medical Biochemists of Serbia (SMBS).
