Research

Dr. Hardy’s research interests have broadly centered on adherence to HIV therapy, therapeutic drug monitoring and safety of antiretrovirals. She implemented a pharmacist-based adherence clinic in 2001 in the Center for HIV/AIDS Care and Research and through this clinic has extended her adherence research interests to specific populations, such as women, pregnant women, HIV-Hepatitis C co-infected patients and minorities.

Dr. Hardy is currently Principal Investigator of several adherence grants in the CHACR and collaborates on a number of other HIV-related projects. Among them are "Enhanced HIV/AIDS Medical Management Services," funded by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and a National Institute on Drug Abuse-sponsored R01, entitled "Natural History of Hepatitis-C Infection in HIV Disease."
