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.
In a series of short video interviews, leading HIV cure researchers discuss their work and the challenges they are striving to overcome.
A new round of grants brings amfAR’s investment in cure-focused research to more than $6 million so far this year.
