September 30, 2011

Dr. Curtis Cooper has been selected to receive the Glen Hillson Award from the Canadian Treatment Action Council in recognition of his excellence in support of HIV-related human rights and advocacy issues, particularly with respect to ensuring that people with HIV have access to liver transplants. Dr. Cooper has conducted extensive research in this area, including a recent systematic review that showed that contrary to popular belief, people with HIV fare just as well after liver transplantation as people without HIV.
