The mission of the UCSF-Gladstone CFAR International Program is to serve our community of researchers working internationally. The program aims to support research in resource-limited international settings by leveraging all CFAR cores and programs and facilitating their international activities. The region of East Africa is a priority of our program given the strong UCSF presence there. (Read the full introduction by Director Craig Cohen)
Translational Research Capacity Building Program
Our Center's central goal is facilitating scientific progress in HIV by providing the broadest community of member investigators with direct services that result in important collaborative work. CFAR assembles scientific teams across our distributed research environment and supports those efforts, via our new Translational Research Laboratory in Uganda, Cohorts, and CFAR Scientific Cores.
