UCLA AIDS Institute Center For Aids Research



UCLA Center for AIDS Research (CFAR)

Director: Jerome Zack, PhD

The UCLA AIDS Institute receives most of its infrastructure support from the Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR) program of the National Institutes of Health. The program supports a multidisciplinary environment by promoting basic, behavioral, clinical, and translational research in prevention, detection, and treatment of HIV infection and AIDS. The UCLA CFAR was established in 1988 and is currently one of 20 CFARs across the United States.

Our mission is to create synergy among diverse research disciplines that result in significant breakthroughs in understanding, preventing and treating HIV infection.

Our CFAR is made up of 9 Cores which provide support to UCLA Faculty through shared resources and services, consultation, technical training and funding opportunities. 

For general information about the CFAR, please contact the CFAR Administrator at: (310) 794-7209

Please acknowledge the UCLA CFAR in any publications resulting from CFAR support by listing "UCLA Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) NIH/NIAID AI028697".
