B.C. researchers on the leading edge of the fight against HIV/AIDS

July 20, 2015 - Vancouver is hosting this week about 6,000 HIV/AIDS experts for the eighth International AIDS Society (IAS) conference to study advances in HIV research.

Last month, UBC received $1 million from a medical marijuana producer to support research on marijuana's potential to treat HIV and reduce pain and nausea caused by HIV drugs. The research is led by assistant professor of medicine M-J Milloy.

“This contribution will allow us to begin to rigorously assess whether these benefits [of cannabis] are truly real,” said Julio Montaner, director of the B.C. Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS and conference co-chair.
