Internal Advisory Board

The Internal Advisory Board (IAB) members serve as an administrative and advisory body. The IAB reviews and evaluates core operations and the effectiveness of programs supported in and by the Center. It is also the primary group involved in the scientific and tactical planning sessions convened to review the Center's operational effectiveness. In these meetings, IAB members examine current clinical and basic scientific issues in HIV/AIDS research, as well as emerging questions around HIV disease. Members provide scientific expertise during the annual pilot funding cycles, reviewing research letters of intent and identifying promising research directions from within the broader UCSF enterprise. The IAB also provides input on proposed strategic funding initiatives and core programs and services. Finally, the IAB assists in the preparation of the science agendas for our CFAR Scientific Council, as well as the program and schedule of presentations to the Center's External Advisory Committee.
