    • Many of our CFAR Developmental Awards support research conducted outside the United States.
    • The International Mentored Scientist grant mechanism is specifically designed to support career development of scientists from outside the U.S.

    The mission of the UCSF-Gladstone CFAR International Program is to serve our community of researchers working internationally. The program aims to support research in resource-limited international settings by leveraging all CFAR cores and programs and facilitating their international activities. The region of East Africa is a priority of our program given the strong UCSF presence there. The UCSF-Gladstone Center for AIDS Research seeks to expand HIV research occurring at the intersections of basic, clinical, and behavioral/ epidemiological scientific disciplines. Our Center's central goal is facilitating scientific progress in HIV by providing the broadest community of member investigators across our distributed research environment with direct and indirect resources such as access to emerging technologies and the availability of dynamic scientific cores

    The University of California San Francisco-Gladstone Center for AIDS Research (UCSF-Gladstone CFAR) coordinates a robust program focused on interdisciplinary research in HIV disease. Hundreds of investigators use our administrative and scientific cores and services to support translational, collaborative research occurring at the intersection of basic, clinical, and population sciences. The CFAR's developmental and mentorship programs help to ensure a strong future for scientific research.

    The UCSF-Gladstone CFAR is directed by Warner C. Greene, MD, PhD, Director of the Gladstone Institute of Virology and Immunology and Paul A. Volberding, MD, Principal Investigator; Professor, UCSF Department of Medicine; Director, UCSF AIDS Research Institute; Director of Research, UCSF Global Health Sciences. All aspects of the program's governance are informed by an active Internal Advisory Board and the Scientific Council.
