Zuckerberg SF General - Dept. of Experimental Medicine

About This Show:




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.

The 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 infectious disease.
