Adrienne Shapiro, MD, PhD, is Acting Assistant Professor in the Departments of Global Health and Medicine (Infectious Diseases) at the University of Washington. Her research focuses on strategies to improve diagnosis and prevention of tuberculosis (TB), particularly in people with HIV/AIDS and in resource-limited settings. She is principal investigator of a career development (K23) award from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to develop optimized TB diagnostic algorithms using novel point-of-care diagnostic tools. She is also engaged in studies of delivery approaches for TB preventive therapy to people with HIV and using point-of-care tools to evaluate risk factors for poor outcomes in TB and HIV, including drug and alcohol use.

Dr. Shapiro is an attending physician at Harborview Medical Center and the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle.
