HIV: Past, Present, and Future

HIVTuesday evenings, February 19 – April 02

7:00 to 8:45 p.m., Main Campus, 513 Parnassus Avenue

After bursting on the scene in the early 1980’s in San Francisco, HIV/AIDS has played a major role in this city’s history. From the first days of tragedy to the major forces of political activism, San Francisco has helped shape treatment and prevention efforts globally. This series, taught by national and international leaders in HIV research,
will present the history of the disease, how it was discovered, as well as explore how the epidemic continues to evolve worldwide. We will
review the basic science of HIV/AIDS, and its clinical, socioeconomic, gender-based, and political ramifications. Drs. Paul Volberding and Jay Levy, medical pioneers in this field, as well as Dr. Diane Havlir, Chief of the Division of HIV/AIDS at UCSF and co-chair of the 2012 International AIDS Conference, will be joined by other renowned UCSF faculty to provide students a comprehensive, up-to-the-moment understanding of this complex disease and give a glimpse of what the future holds for a potential cure.


Course chair:
Monica Gandhi, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of HIV/AIDS, UCSF School of Medicine
