      I was trained in Medical Oncology but became involved in the early AIDS epidemic in San Francisco based at San Francisco General Hospital. I have worked in clinical trials in HIV-related malignancies but primarily in the development of antiretroviral therapy. I am the PI and co-director with Warner Greene of the NIAID-funded UCSF-Gladstone Center for AIDS Research which supports the large community of HIV investigators in San Francisco. CFAR provides core services, pilot grants to early career stage investigators and supports a comprehensive mentorship program. In the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute I serve as a member of the Board of Directors and formerly directed the Global Health Program. I stepped down as the Chief of the Medical Service at the San Francisco VA Medical Center in 2012 to become the Director of the UCSF AIDS Research Institute and Director of Research for UCSF Global Health Sciences. The ARI is the comprehensive university structure that links all HIV/AIDS research programs and is the central focus for communications, media relations and philanthropic support for this internationally recognized response to the HIV epidemic. My role at GHS as the Director of Research is to convene and sustain the rapidly expanding group of UCSF faculty members conducting research in over 60 countries worldwide, much but not all involving communicable diseases. I also serve as the Associate Chair of the UCSF Department of Medicine for Global Health. My clinical appointment is at the VA where I maintain an active HIV outpatient practice and where I serve on the Board of Directors of the research non-profit, NCIRE. I am the director of the large internet site development and management group, the Center for HIV Information which manages seven sites including the heavily used HIV InSite. I am the Clinical Editor in Chief of the Journal of the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndromes and serve as the Chair of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Accordia Global AIDS Foundation and the Infectious Diseases Institute at Makerere University in Kampala Uganda. I am a board member of the Pangaea Global AIDS Foundation and serve on the Scientific Advisory Board of PEPFAR in the US State Department. I am an active member of the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) of the National Academy of Sciences and am the founder and Board Chair of the International Antiviral Society-USA.
