The evening will feature UBC associate professor and CANFAR Scientific Advisory Committee member Dr. Hélène Côté, who has focused her research on antiretroviral drugs used in HIV therapy.

The upscale event will be held at the Telus Garden rooftop hosting centre (510 West Georgia Street), starting at 8 p.m.
