Dr Ana PROTIC
Ana Protić is an assistant professor at the Department of Drug Analysis, University of Belgrade-Faculty of Pharmacy. She obtained a PhD degree in the field of Pharmaceutical chemistry and Drug analysis in 2011. Currently participates in teaching process within undergraduated and postgraduated studies.
She has been working on development of (U)HPLC methods with different detection techniques. Nowadays, her research is focused on the examination of quantitative relationship between structure and retention or property behavior (QSR(P)Rs) of group of compounds in different chromatographic systems. Moreover, the research is mainly directed towards investigating beta-cyclodextrin modified HPLC systems as they offer possibility of developing ecologically acceptable chromatographic methods. In light of this, chemometric approach by means of experimental design, methodology of multi-criteria optimization and determination of relevant molecular descriptors, has been used in clarifying the molecular mechanisms of retention in reverse phased and modified HPLC systems. This complex modelling of retention and property behavior of drugs and structurally related compounds requires the aid of machine learning techniques, such as artificial neural networks, computer technology that has the ability to "learn", since it is a simulation of neural activity in the brain.
