Launched on the eve of World AIDS Day 2015, the amfAR Institute for HIV Cure Research is the centerpiece of our $100 million investment strategy aimed at developing the scientific basis of a cure by the end of 2020.

Established with a five-year $20 million grant to the University of California, San Francisco, the Institute brings together many of the finest minds and most experienced researchers working in the field today.  

Under the direction of renowned AIDS researcher Dr. Paul Volberding, teams of investigators will work collaboratively to address the scientific challenges that stand in the way of a cure.

The amfAR Institute is based at UCSF’s Mission Bay Campus
