About the Division

The Division of Experimental Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco focuses on immunity to infectious diseases of global importance. Through multidisciplinary and collaborative approaches, we study immunity to infectious agents that affect large human populations, especially HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria, with the goal of contributing to their elimination.
