About Professor Barry J. Marshall
Awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 2005 for their 1982 discovery that Helicobacter pylori bacterium plays a major role in causing peptic ulcers, Professor Barry J. Marshall and J. Robin Warren’s research at the University of Western Australia has revolutionised medicine’s understanding and treatment of stomach cancer. Marshall and Warren’s work is acknowledged as the most significant discovery in the history of gastroenterology and is compared to the development of the polio vaccine and the eradication of smallpox.
Professor Marshall was Western Australian of the year in 2007, and became a Companion in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AC) that year as well. He is included in the Chinese government’s “1000 Talents Plan”, and has honorary doctorates from universities in Italy, Hong Kong, Poland and Australia.
The topic of Professor Marshall’s keynote speech will be announced closer to the event.
