2017 - HIV Cure Summit

Cure Discussed from Many Perspectives at amfAR World AIDS Day Summit

December 5, 2017

A wide range of perspectives—from clinicians, biomedical scientists and social researchers to patients and community leaders—were presented at amfAR’s 2017 World AIDS Day HIV Cure Summit at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), November 28. UCSF is home to the amfAR Institute for HIV Cure Research, established in 2015 with a five-year $20 million grant to UCSF.

“Not only do we have the best researchers here in San Francisco,” said amfAR vice president and director of research Dr. Rowena Johnston in her opening remarks, “we also have such a dedicated community of people who have been there from the beginning, who are committed to helping bring an end to HIV and AIDS.”
