The AIDS Research Institute (ARI) coordinates and integrates all AIDS research activities at the University of California, San Francisco. The ARI stimulates innovation and supports interdisciplinary collaboration aimed at all aspects of the epidemic domestically and around the world. Bringing together hundreds of scientists and more than 50 programs from throughout the university and affiliated labs and institutions, and working in close collaboration with affected communities, the ARI is one of the premier AIDS research entities in the world.
The ARI also provides administration for the Laboratory of Clinical Virology.
The AIDS Research Institute at UCSF is committed to fostering innovative and integrated science—basic, clinical, prevention, and policy research—to prevent, understand, treat, and someday cure HIV infection; rapid dissemination and implementation of our findings; and training new scientists to continue working toward our ultimate goal of ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
