Internal Advisory Board

In Fall 2019, the UCSF-Gladstone CFAR reconfigured and redesigned the function of its Internal Advisory Board (IAB). The purpose of the IAB is to provide strategic guidance and input to the new CFAR leadership as they brainstorm and plan new activities, develop policies and procedures, and evaluate existing cores and services moving into the competitive renewal due in August 2021.

The board will meet on an as-needed basis, typically after the newly-established monthly Wednesday morning CFAR seminar.

A diversity of perspectives is vital to the functioning of the board. The committee represents a cross-section of HIV research at UCSF and our partner institutions. Standing members represent CFAR’s leading institutions or programs with large segments of the local HIV research. The rest of the HIV research enterprise will represented by members-at-large, currently being recruited.

We encourage members of the CFAR research community to contact their standing member or CFAR leadership with feedback for CFAR.
