Radmila Pavlovic is a researcher at ProMeFa (Proteomics and Metabolomics Facility) in the Center of Omics Sciences at IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele. She is specialized in high-resolution mass spectrometry metabolomics studies with expertise in molecular structure elucidation, data mining tools and metabolic pathway investigation.
From 1995 to 2013, she worked at the Faculty of Medicine (University of Nis, Serbia), firstly as a researcher and then as an associate professor in Medical and Organic Chemistry. In 2008 she got her PhD in Biochemistry at Milan State University, studying oxidative and nitrative stress in pathological events. She thus had the opportunity to develop validated analytical procedures based on mass spectrometry to detect specific biomarkers. Afterwards she spent eight years at the Faculty of Veterinary (Milan State University), where she was in charge of setting up both the sample preparation and the instrumental protocols for targeted and untargeted metabolomics applied to food authenticity and traceability studies. In addition, her research was focused on developing, optimizing, and applying innovative analytical methods based on high-resolution mass spectrometry to evaluate the presence of xenobiotics in different foods of animal origin and to define food safety parameters for purposes of health risk prevention.
