Patient Care

As a leading health sciences institution with a top academic medical center, UCSF conducts numerous clinical trials and offers opportunities to patients to enroll in trials of the most promising new treatments. Patients benefit directly from collaborations of clinical and research teams.


Few institutions rival UCSF’s research capacity in immunology — an effort already known for clarifying key steps in the formation of the immune defense system and for devising strategies to modify and control immune reactions to treat and prevent disease.


UCSF’s reputation as a leading institution in health sciences education encompasses its training programs in immunology and infectious diseases. UCSF training in AIDS and in immunology and infectious diseases is ranked as one of the premier programs in the country.
