AIDS Research Institute
Building on UC San Diego’s stellar reputation, its intellectual power and collaborative culture, the AIDS Research Institute (ARI) is a place where researchers and clinicians are saving and improving lives with cutting-edge care, treatment and research.
In 1996, the ARI was established by the Regents of the University of California as an Organized Research Unit, to serve as an umbrella organization coordinating the diverse AIDS research, clinical and educational activities at UC San Diego.
The ARI is committed to fostering interdisciplinary discovery and innovation to galvanize our members’ efforts to end HIV and create an AIDS-free generation. A key strategy for accomplishing this is to raise vital funding to support the unmet needs of critical research, clinical care and training for our members and programs. Another strategy is to support the San Diego community by providing resources and relevant educational opportunities in a variety of areas related to HIV infection.
By coordinating and promoting scientific research and exchange within the academic community, as well as providing clinical resources and education to the community at large, our members strive to halt the spread of HIV and AIDS through cutting-edge research, innovative clinical trials, clinical care, and public education.
