American Foundation for AIDS Research Key Developments

amfAR Establishes San Francisco-Based Institute for HIV Cure Research

amfAR announced the establishment of the amfAR Institute for HIV Cure Research, an innovative collaborative enterprise based at the University of California, San Francisco. As the cornerstone of amfAR's $100 million cure research investment strategy, the aim of the Institute will be to develop the scientific basis of a cure for HIV by the end of 2020. The Institute will support teams of scientists working across the research continuum--from basic science to clinical studies and will tap into UCSF's extensive research network across the region. It will involve collaborations with the Gladstone Institute of Virology and Immunology and Blood Systems Research Institute, as well as Oregon Health and Science University; University of California, Berkeley; Gilead Sciences; and the Infectious Disease Research Institute in Seattle, Washington. The new Institute, headquartered in UCSF's Global Health and Clinical Sciences Building at Mission Bay, was established with a $20 million grant over five years. It will enable teams of researchers to work collaboratively, across institutions and across disciplines, to address the four key challenges that must be overcome to effect a cure: pinpoint the precise locations of the latent reservoirs of virus; determine how they are formed and persist; quantify the amount of virus in them; and finally, eradicate the reservoirs from the body.
