After obtaining her Bachelor of Science in pharmacy at the University of Toronto, Angela Kashuba, Pharm.D., completed a general practice residency at Women’s College Hospital, and practiced as a critical care pharmacist at Mount Sinai Hospital, in Toronto, Canada. Kashuba received her Pharm.D. from the State University of New York at Buffalo and completed postdoctoral pharmacology training at the Clinical Pharmacology Research Center at Bassett Healthcare in Cooperstown, New York.
Kashuba joined the UNC-Chapel Hill faculty in 1997. She was named the John and Deborah McNeill, Jr. Distinguished Professor in 2013 and served as chair of the Division of Pharmacotherapy and Experimental Therapeutics from 2015 to 2019. She serves as Director of the UNC Center for AIDS Research Clinical Pharmacology and Analytical Chemistry Core.
Dr. Kashuba’s research focuses on the clinical pharmacology of drugs used in the treatment, prevention and cure of HIV infection. She is working on optimizing dosing strategies for HIV prevention including the role of sex and ethnicity, characterizing drug distribution in putative viral reservoirs using mass spectrometry imaging, determining predictors of drug tissue distribution, and developing in vitro models for optimizing combination therapy for HIV cure.
