Mission & Goals

The UC San Diego HIV Institute’s mission is to foster interdisciplinary discovery and innovation to galvanize our programs’ and members’ efforts to create an HIV-free generation. Serving as the regional nexus for scientists and clinicians to share research and new approaches, the Institute partners with the San Diego community to prevent, diagnose, treat, and one day cure HIV.

We cultivate up-and-coming researchers and care providers; nurture leading-edge, cooperative scientific research and academic exchange that contribute to new treatment methods and greater hope for a cure; champion UC San Diego’s world-class HIV/AIDS programs; foster investigators to improve prevention efforts locally and abroad; provide state-of-the-art clinical and educational resources and training to the San Diego community and international partners; and raise vital funding to support the unmet needs of critical research, clinical care and training for our members and programs.
