Clinical Assistant Professor, Pharmacy - University Studies/Entering Student Program

Dr. Pinal completed her Doctor of Pharmacy degree at the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy. She received postgraduate training at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy where she completed a pharmacy practice residency with a pediatric focus.

Her research interests include pediatric medication safety, pediatric chronic disease states, antibiotic use/resistance in cystic fibrosis and pediatric patients, medication adherence/literacy, pediatric health disparities, and preventative strategies for optimization of health and medication use.
