PhD Magdalena Stevanović was born on August 04, 1974 in Belgrade, Serbia. She graduated from the Faculty of Physical Chemistry at the Belgrade University in 2002 with theme “Determining the hormone of thyroid gland T3 and T4 using a method of radioimmunology analysis with different systems for separating loose from linked radioactivity”. Magdalena Stevanović completed her M.Sc. studies at the same Faculty in 2006 with thesis “Obtaining, morphology and structure of poly(DL-lactide-co-glycolide) powder and biocomposite poly(DL-lactide-co-glycolide)/biphasic calcium phosphate”. The fields of expertise covered by the thesis are controlled delivery of medicaments in the body, biomaterials and polymers. She was elected a Research Assistant in 2006. She took her PhD degree in December 2007 at the Faculty of Physical Chemistry in Belgrade by defending the PhD thesis titled "Synthesis, characterization and degradation of poly (DL-lactide-co-glycolide) nanospheres containing ascorbic acid". In 2008, she was elected a Research Associate and in 2012 a Senior Research Associate.
