International AIDS Society president Julio Montaner will give a free public lecture at 12:30 pm, Friday, Mar. 6, at SFU’s Burnaby campus, as the inaugural guest of the AIDS Awareness Network’s first annual keynote speaker series. Montaner, who heads Vancouver’s BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, is one of the world’s most respected HIV-AIDS researchers. His groundbreaking work with antiretroviral drugs in Canada in the 1990s helped to revolutionize treatment of the disease worldwide. The Argentinean-born Canadian physician, who will speak about managing HIV/AIDS as a chronic inflammatory disease, is also a tireless advocate for patients’ rights. Room 9660, Blusson Hall.

Correction: Feb. 25, 2009
The original, print version of this story incorrectly spoke of Montaner's
groundbreaking work with antiretroviral drugs in the 1980s, rather than the 1990s.
