Family celebrations

Last term Lorian Marshall shared in the celebrations with her grandfather, Professor Barry Marshall and family at the opening of the Barry J Marshall Science Library at the University of Western Australia. The University's News page provides more information about this memorable event. We commend Lorian for continuing with her passion for Science.

Ten years after Professor Barry Marshall's Nobel Prize, The University of Western Australia has renamed its Science Library in his honour. Professor Marshall and his colleague Dr Robin Warren won the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of the bacterium H.pylori and its role in gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. Professor Marshall is remembered in particular for acting as a human guinea pig and swallowing a concoction containing H.pylori to prove his research.
