Ana Ninić was born in 1978 in Kruševac, Serbia. She has graduated as a pharmacist in 2005.

Ana Ninić has been employed as associate for practical training at the Department of Medical Biochemistry since March 2006. She enrolled in the PhD program in Medical Biochemistry at the Faculty of Pharmacy in October 2006. She was elected in as a teaching assistant in 2007. She enrolled in Specialty studies in Medical Biochemistry at Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Belgrade.

She participates in practical training on Integrated Academic Studies for both Master of Pharmacy and Master of Pharmacy – Medical Biochemist study programs.

She is the co-author of 13 scientific papers and 12 presentations on international and national scientific meetings. According to Scopus internet database, her papers were quoted 57 times till 2012.

          From 2006 till 2010, she participated at the scientific project entitled “The study of biochemical and genetic risk factors as causes and markersof atherosclerosis and other diseases: analytical and clinical aspects”, and from 2011 she is a collaborator at the project “Interactive role of dyslipidemia, oxidative stress and inflammation in atherosclerosis and other diseases: genetic and biochemical markers “, financed by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of Republic of Serbia. From 2008 till 2011, she participated at international project within European research programme COST, (European Cooperation in Science and Technology); Scientific Domain: Biomedicine and Molecular Biosciences; Action: Lipid Peroxidation Associated Disorders: LPO (B35); Role of oxidative stress and dyslipidemia in atherosclerosis. Since 2010, she participates at international project COST: Scientific Domain: Biomedicine and Molecular Biosciences; Action: HDL: From Biological Understanding to Clinical Exploitation"‎ (BM0904).

Scientific research interest of Ana Ninić is mainly based on analysis of gene expression patterns of antioxidative enzymes and determination of oxidative stress and antioxidative defense biomarkers as predictive factors for cardiovascular disease.

She is a member of the Serbian Society for Mitochondrial and Free-Radical Physiology.
