UCSF Division of Prevention Science

Welcome to the Division of Prevention Science. We are a highly productive, vibrant, and innovative group of scientists who conduct cutting-edge, significant, high-impact prevention research. As prevention scientists, we are committed to understanding the etiology and prevention of social, structural, physical and mental health problems in order to translate that knowledge to the promotion of health and well-being. We have a very strong record of training the next generation of prevention scientists, both domestic and international. And strong community collaborations have ensured we remain an important resource that makes a significant impact at the local, state, national and international levels.

The Division is home to the Center for AIDS Prevention Studies and UCSF Prevention Research Center.
