amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research
amfAR plays a vital role in AIDS research, identifying critical gaps in our knowledge of HIV and AIDS, and supporting groundbreaking studies that often lack the preliminary data required by more traditional funders.
The key obstacle to an HIV cure remains the reservoir of persistent virus, which is impervious to standard anti-HIV drugs.

amfAR research funding targets biggest roadblocks to HIV cure
Headquartered at the University of California, San Francisco, the amfAR Institute represents an exciting new collaboration in the search for a cure for HIV.
Our goal is to develop the scientific basis for a cure by the end of 2020.
The amfAR Research Consortium on HIV Eradication, or ARCHE, is enabling teams of researchers to collaborate.
amfAR announced that it has awarded seven scientists a total of approximately $1.4 million in research grants.
The research teams at the amfAR Institute will undertake a wide range of cure studies over the next five years.
