He was a member of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) at its inception, and served as chair of the Pharmacology Committee and as a member of the Executive Committee. His research has been primarily in the area of clinical investigation, with a focus on the clinical pharmacology of drugs used in patients with HIV infection with an emphasis on modeling exposure-response relationships and adherence. His involvement in clinical trials and with the pharmaceutical industry has also lead to a strong interest in approaches to improve the efficiency of the drug development process, in part by applying modeling and simulation to the design of clinical trials. Currently his interests in and activities at the foundation are in clinical studies that help provide access to drugs for patients living in low and middle income countries and in improving patient adherence drugs, thus lowering the risk of promoting drug resistant variants of HIV and of TB. Dr. Blaschke has over 180 original publications in peer reviewed journals and is an Associate Editor of the Annual Review of Pharmacology and Toxicology, and an Executive Editor of the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology.
