The Division of Experimental Medicine is funded by the Zuckerberg
Foundation, and is part of the UCSF system, which received over $575
million in 2016.
The Division of Experimental Medicine is focused on the creation of new
and effective vaccines and therapies against chronic infectious agents
such as HIV, HCV, TB, malaria and parasitic worms.
Our faculty are
outstanding scientists who are experts in one or more of these
infectious diseases and who wish to collaborate with one another to
understand how the human immune system can best handle infection, with
the goal to discover better treatments or effective vaccines.
Division is one of the few places in the world that has assembled such
multidisciplinary teams working on the human immunology of these chronic
infectious diseases. Our faculty also wish to attract, train, and
promote a new cadre of physician scientists who can serve as the role
models and catalysts for future scientific advances in global health.
The San Francisco General Hospital Foundation has raised more than $220
million to fund initiatives that support research, education and care at
Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.
In addition; The Orthopedic Trauma Institute has grown into a
world-renowned center for innovative research, training and care in
orthopedic trauma with seed money from the Foundation.
The mission of the Division of Experimental Medicine, based at the San
Francisco General Hospital Medical Center, is to understand the human
immune system so that lifesaving therapies and vaccines can be developed
to protect against chronic infectious diseases of global importance,
such as HIV/AIDS; and to establish a training environment that fosters
patient-oriented research, both here and abroad.
The Division of Experimental Medicine is primarily focused upon
understanding the cellular and molecular immunology of chronic
