About

Established in 1986,  the Center for AIDS Prevention Studies (CAPS) at UC San Francisco is one of the world’s largest research centers dedicated to social, behavioral, and policy science approaches to HIV.  Learn more about our history, our faculty and staff, how our center is structured, and how to get in touch with us.

The Prevention Research Centers (PRCs) are a network of 25 academic research centers in 20 states that study how people and their communities can avoid or counter risks for chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, obesity, and cancer. The UCSF Prevention Research Center became a part of that network in 2014 and was refunded for another five years in 2019, with a focus on addressing the significant HIV health disparities among transgender women and African-Americans by strengthening community engagement and translating and disseminating HIV science.
