Areas of Interest
Kashuba’s research interests surround the clinical pharmacology of antiretroviral agents used in the treatment, prevention, and cure of HIV infection. Current projects focus on characterizing mechanisms of antiretroviral distribution in tissue reservoirs of HIV, developing mass spectrometry imaging methods for quantifying adherence, advancing interventions for real-time adherence monitoring (ENLIGHTEN clinical study), and optimizing antiretroviral dosing during pregnancy.
Angela Kashuba, B.Sc.Phm., Pharm.D., DABCP, FCP, is the John A and Margaret P McNeill, Sr. Distinguished Professor and Dean of the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. She has been on faculty at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill since 1997 and served as the Chair of the Division of Pharmacotherapy and Experimental Therapeutics from 2015 to 2019. Dr. Kashuba serves as Director of the UNC Center for AIDS Research Clinical Pharmacology and Analytical Chemistry Core and leads a research laboratory focused on optimizing antiretroviral pharmacology in the treatment, prevention, and eradication of HIV infection. Her laboratory has authored over 250 manuscripts and received over $25 million in research funding. She is the recipient of the 2020 ASCPT Rawls–Palmer Progress in Medicine Award, 2017 ACCP (Pharmacology) Honorary Fellowship Award, and 2017 ACCP (Pharmacy) Therapeutic Frontiers Lecture Award.
