Mike McCune, MD, PhD

Head, HIV Frontiers, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Professor Emeritus of Medicine, Division of Experimental Medicine, UC San Francisco
Gladstone Alumnus

Mike McCune, MD, PhD, directs the HIV Frontiers Program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and is a professor emeritus of medicine at UC San Francisco. Starting in 1982 as a resident in internal medicine at UCSF, he has taken care of patients with HIV disease and has carried out research on HIV pathogenesis and treatment, most recently in his lab at the Division of Experimental Medicine. Since the formation of the companies, SyStemix (1988) and Progenesys (1991), McCune has been focused on finding ways to induce a “cure” (a state of sustained antiretroviral therapy free remission) in those infected with HIV. He joined the Gates Foundation several years ago so that he could work to bring such curative interventions to resource-limited parts of the world with the highest burden of disease and the lowest prospects for control."
