Robert Shrewsbury, Ph.D.

Associate Professor

Bob Shrewsbury received his BS in pharmacy from the University of Oklahoma in 1972 and his PhD from the University of Kentucky in 1977. His background training is in basic and applied biopharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics and in drug-interaction mechanisms. More recently, his research interests have focused on classroom and laboratory instructional methodologies using Web-based or technology-based formats. He has authored over 100 book chapters, numerous online education courses and continuing education seminars and national certification examination study guides for pharmacy professionals, pharmacy students and pharmacy technicians. He built and maintains an internationally utilized website for pharmacy compounding where 40 percent of the users are from outside the United States. He was elected as member of the USP Expert Committee on Compounding in 2010 and again in 2015.

Research
