Following the discovery of AIDS at UCLA in 1981, the UCLA AIDS Institute was established in 1992, to provide a unique, multidisciplinary think-tank of over 200 of the world’s top researchers who are assailing HIV from a dozen different disciplines and directions. The Institute is a global leader in research aiming to develop a safe and effective HIV vaccine, and is actively researching gene therapy as a potential cure for HIV infection. 12% of PAC’s funds will go to the UCLA AIDS Institute, funding a seed grant.
