Dr. Montaner has over 25 years of experience in HIV/AIDS research and developing and conducting HIV-related clinical trials. As a result of Dr. Montaners early research, severe forms of AIDS-related Pneumocystis pneumonia became fully treatable and preventable.

In the mid-1990s, he played a key role in establishing the efficacy of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), an effective treatment that has turned HIV infection into a chronic but manageable condition and dramatically increased the life expectancy of patients with HIV. Since 1996, HAART has been recognized as the international standard of care for people with HIV.

His work has also focused on facilitating access to treatment by hard-to-reach populations and those infected with highly resistant HIV.

Over the last several years, Dr. Montaner has pioneered the concept of "treatment as prevention." It advocates for the immediate treatment of all clinically eligible people with HIV in order to minimize AIDS related morbidity and mortality, as well as HIV transmission. Dr. Montaner's research has shown that HAART dramatically reduces the likelihood of HIV transmission. More recently, he published a landmark paper in The Lancet demonstrating the preventive benefit of HAART expansion in British Columbia. Based on these results, the government of British Columbia funded a $48-million pilot initiative aimed at further expanding HAART coverage in the province, focusing on certain hard-to-reach populations such as sex workers and people who use injection drugs. The initiative, known as Seek and Treat for the

Optimal Prevention of HIV/AIDS (STOP HIV/AIDS), is a ground-breaking strategy central to the BC-CfE's work in turning the tide against HIV/AIDS. The Seek and Treat strategy is becoming recognized worldwide as an effective approach against HIV/AIDS.

In 2009, he was inducted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Canada's most prestigious scholarly organizati
