Dr. Montaner is one of the world's leading HIV/AIDS researchers. A former president of the International AIDS Society, he directs BC Center for Excellence in HIV/AIDS and is a founding co-director of Canadian HIV Trials Network. He pioneered the use of adjunctive corticosteroids for AIDS-related Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. His work also played a significant role in establishing the relationship between the development of HIV resistance to nucleoside analogues and clinical progression of the disease. His recent work has focused on the study of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) as prevention, optimal use of HAART, salvage therapy, new antiretrovirals, hard-to-reach populations, and harm reduction. His achievements have benefited thousands of people living with HIV around the globe.
