Adrienne Shapiro, MD, PhD, is an 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 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, HIV prevention medications and vaccines, and using point-of-care tools to evaluate risk factors for poor outcomes in TB and HIV, including drug and alcohol use. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Shapiro has been involved in COVID-19 vaccine research, understanding the effects of COVID-19 on people with HIV, and clinical trials of COVID-19 treatments.

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