Read about the AIDS Research Institute's history and academic leadership.

In 1996, the AIDS Research Institute, an Organized Research Unit (ORU) was established by the Regents of the University of California to coordinate the diverse AIDS research and clinical activities on the UCSD campus. The Institute is housed within the School of Medicine at UCSD.

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, and public education.

We invite you to read our mission statement and learn about our Scientific Advisory Board. Above all, we would like to hear from you to make sure we're on the right track. Send us an email.
